Graduation Application Process

Graduation Application Process for 2021-2022 Academic Year

Graduation Applications: Students who wish to begin the graduation application process will need to schedule an appointment with a professional advisor in Womack Hall.  The application is not available online, but will be obtained when meeting with the professional advisor. Students who attempt to begin their application without first meeting a professional advisor are likely to repeat steps in the process. When meeting with the professional advisor, steps for having the application reviewed by a faculty advisor and department chair will be explained. 

The Registrar's Office will accept graduation applications only after being reviewed and signed by the professional advisor, faculty advisor, and department chair. The completed application must be either submitted to the Registrar's Office (Womack 210) in-person by the student, or emailed directly from the department chair to the Registrar. After receiving your application, the Registrar's Office will send you an email (including a copy of your application) with important instructions for your next steps, which include paying your graduation fee ($50 Undergraduate; $70 Graduate). The graduation fee will be paid online in Campus Connect. 

Application Deadlines

Nov. 12, 2021: All applications for Fall 2021 graduates must be submitted to the Registrar's Office. Please note this means the application must already have been reviewed by a professional advisor, faculty advisor/s, and department chair/s. 

April 15, 2022: All applications for Spring 2022 graduates must be submitted to the Registrar's Office. Please note this means the application must already have been reviewed by a professional advisor, faculty advisor/s, and department chair/s.

Exceptions to Deadlines: Graduation applications not submitted to the Registrar by the relevant deadline will be delayed until the following graduation cycle. Only under exceptional circumstances will applications be accepted after the deadline. If an application is accepted after the deadline a late fee of $25 will be charged to the student's account.
