Students are eligible to apply for graduation once they have achieved 90 or more credit hours. All students who expect to graduate must submit the online graduation application and pay the non-refundable graduation fee, through their online Banner account. Before doing so, the student should review and discuss their online degree evaluation with their advisor to determine if they are on track to meet degree requirements.
Students must apply for graduation in order to participate in commencement exercises. Prospective graduates for Spring Commencement must apply for graduation by March 30 of the same year. Prospective graduates for Winter Commencement must apply for graduation by October 30 of the same year. The university assumes no responsibility for making special adjustments for students who file late applications for graduation. The university cannot guarantee that names of students who file late applications will appear in the Commencement booklet or the Honors supplement.
Students who fail to meet graduation requirements automatically void their candidacy for that particular graduation term. If the student does not complete the necessary degree requirements within two semesters of his/her expected term of graduation, then the student must re-apply and pay an additional application fee.
