Applying for Graduation
If you expect to fulfill
degree requirements during the next academic year, the
graduation application deadline for the spring semester is

completed. You may graduate at the end of the fall semester,
end of the spring semester, or end of the summer sessions,
but graduation ceremonies are held only once a year in May. You
must notify the Office of the Registrar when you intend to
graduate by filing an Application
