Graduation is great!

Request to Graduate Form
If you think you have completed (or will soon complete) the requirements for your program, be sure to fill out a Request to Graduate form and turn it in to the Registrar Office.  Please have your form turned in by April 21st.  Forms submitted after this date will still be accepted for evaluation, but your name may not be included in the program for the commencement ceremony. Even if you did not plan to participate in the ceremony, the Registrar still needs this form completed to evaluate your record and award your degree.

Already Filled out the Form?
If you already filled out your Request to Graduate form, or graduated in the Fall, please check the 16-17 Potential & Awarded Degrees list.  We want to make sure we have your name as you would like it to appear in the commencement program, and that we have correct degree information listed.  If you see something is wrong, please notify the Registrar Office right away!

Caps and Gowns
Caps, gowns, and tassels will be available for pick up at each campus bookstore beginning April 19th. These items are free of charge and yours to keep. Please be sure to pick yours up ahead of time, as you will not be able to pick them up the night of graduation.
