GRADUATION
APPLICATION
GRADUATE & DOCTORATE
The Graduation Application is used by the student to notify the university that they are ready to complete their degree
program. All coursework for the degree program must be completed prior to the award date (end of graduation term). The
student’s record may not be altered following the awarding of the degree so it is critical that the Graduation Application be
accurate at the time of filing.
A Graduation Application is filed once for a degree program. The student pays a $20 application and $10 diploma fee ($30
total) at the time of filing. Once the Graduation Application is filed it may be updated (e.g. change term, major, option, etc.) by
using the Request to Change Graduation Term form and paying a $25 late filing fee The fee must be paid before the selected
term ends.

before the selected term ends.

submitted. The form and fee must be submitted and paid before the selected term ends.
