Graduation Procedures

The student must file an Intent to Graduate Form with the Enrollment Services by the appropriate deadline for the term in which the student plans to graduate.

  • December candidates should file for graduation by the preceding May.
  • May candidates should file by the preceding September.

Intent to Graduate Forms with specific dates are published online see the Intent to Graduate Forms page. Students graduating in absentia are not exempt from paying the graduation fee.

The student is expected to participate in the graduation services unless a prior request to graduate in absentia has been approved by the faculty. Requests to graduate in absentia must be made in writing and be submitted to Enrollment Services by January 15. Requests submitted after this date will be assessed a $25 late fee if granted.
