Application for Graduation

Submit an Application for Graduation

Submit your application via AccessPlus student tab, graduation, application (upper left corner).

An application for graduation should be submitted only if all academic requirements will be completed in the term specified on the application (this includes internships, transfer credits, etc.)

The graduation application is not an application to participate in the commencement ceremony.

Deadlines to Submit Undergrad Graduation Applications:

Spring (May) - Friday before Thanksgiving break
Summer (August) - Friday before spring break
Fall (December) - Last business day of July

If you miss the deadline, you can still submit an application through the last day of the term of graduation.
Students who submit their application less than three weeks before graduation will not be listed in the university commencement program.
