Graduation/Application for Diploma

Each candidate for a degree must file a Degree/Diploma Application with the Office of the Registrar, typically within ten days of the beginning date of classes for the term in which the student expects to complete the requirements for degree. Please consult the Applying to Graduate Webpage,, for specific dates. In extenuating circumstances, applications may be accepted after the published deadline. Applications accepted after the deadline will require a $35.00 non-refundable late application fee (cash or check only). Payment is due at the time of submission. Applications will not be accepted after the last day of classes for the specific term. If an application for a diploma was filed for a previous graduation period in which the student did not graduate, a new application is necessary. Degrees are granted at the end of the fall, winter, and summer terms, even though commencement exercises are held only in April (or May) and December.
