Apply To Graduate

Undergraduate candidates for graduation must apply to graduate using the graduation application available in Athena by the withdrawal deadline of the semester in which they intend to graduate. Please note that when applying for spring or summer semesters, undergraduate applicants must apply for the term in which they will take their last course(s) toward their graduation requirements. Undergraduate candidates applying for summer by the graduation application deadline for spring/summer are eligible to participate in the spring undergraduate commencement ceremony in May and will appear in the spring/summer commencement program except students with FERPA restrictions. A FERPA restriction must be removed in order to appear in the program.

Detailed instructions on how to apply to graduate as an undergraduate are available.  Note: Please only apply once for each program.  Students can check their graduation application status in Athena under the View Application to Graduate option on the Student Services page. If an application is listed in the dropdown, then the graduation application was sucessfully made.

Graduate students expecting to graduate should consult the Graduate Bulletin for information regarding graduation requirements. Graduate students should also contact the graduate coordinator’s office in his or her academic department or email for general information regarding graduation requirements.

Graduate commencement exercises are held in spring and fall. Students completing requirements during summer have the option to participate in the fall graduate commencement ceremony.
