To be eligible to participate in Commencement 2024, students must:
1. File for Graduation
A graduation application must be submitted for the graduation terms of fall 2023, spring 2024 or summer 2024.
The graduation application is used by the student to notify the university that they are ready to complete their bachelor's, master's or doctoral degree program. All coursework for the degree program must be completed prior to the award date (end of the graduation term they applied for). Students will not be able to register beyond their expected declared graduation term, so it is critical that the graduation application be accurate at the time of filing.
Undergraduate students should contact the Registrar’s Evaluation Unit with questions regarding completion of degree requirements, degree conferral and diplomas. For more information on how to apply to graduate, please visit the Apply for Graduation website of the Office of the Registrar.
Graduate students should contact the Office of Graduate Studies with questions regarding completion of degree requirements, degree conferral and diplomas. For more information on how to apply to graduate, please visit the Office of Graduate Studies website.
