Information for Graduate Students
Apply for Graduation
Graduates must apply for graduation to participate in the ceremony.
Apply by October 2 to have your name printed in the ceremony program. Graduates who apply after the deadline will be able to walk and have their name read at their ceremony.
Share your journey to graduation, inspire your graduating class, and emphasize what is important to you while sharing your talents with friends and family.
Graduate students who will be earning their degree in the spring or summer can apply to be a commencement speaker. By submitting your application, you authorize the selection committee to access and review your grades, enrollment status, and conduct records.
Your years of hard work are almost complete, and your cap and gown are important symbols of your achievement.
