Application for Graduation

You must consult with your advisor early in the semester prior to your graduation to determine if all of your program requirements will be met.

Tips for completing your application

  • Enter your name exactly as you want it to appear on your diploma.
  • Use upper and lower case letters, not all caps.
  • Insert spaces, capitalized letters, hyphens, and apostrophes where appropriate.

The name you submit must match your official name on file at the University, with the following exceptions:

  • Option of first name or initial
  • Option of former or maiden name(s)
  • Inclusion of proper capitalization and accentuation of name

A graduation information packet will be mailed to you approximately four weeks prior to the commencement ceremony.
