Did you submit a graduation application to the Office of the Registrar for the above term? Yes No
• A graduation application for the appropriate term MUST be on file with the Office of the Registrar prior to submitting this

• Submission of this form does not mean that my request to participate has been granted. I will be informed in writing about the

only by e-mail to my ASU e-mail account, but may be made by U.S. mail to the address on the top of this form.

Ceremony preceding my degree conferral, I will not be allowed to participate in another Commencement Ceremony and my
name will not be listed in the next Ceremony’s program. Participation includes procession, having my name called, walking
across the stage, having my picture taken, and the recessional. My name will be in the Commencement program, provided my
form is processed before the program is finalized.
• If I am approved to participate in commencement and choose not to participate, I will notify firstname.lastname@example.org in
writing three weeks prior to commencement.
• If, during the course of the semester, I no longer qualify to participate (e.g., by receiving W or F grades in courses I am
taking in current term, or by earning a GPA too low to graduate), my approval to participate will be revoked.
• I will not receive a diploma until I have met graduation requirements, and my transcript will not state I have graduated until I
have met graduation requirements.
