Graduation application deadline nears

To All Graduating Students:


The final day to apply for graduation for the Fall semester is Friday, November 1st.

Eligible students who do NOT apply for graduation by this deadline will not be considered for graduation until the end of the next semester. 


If you plan to complete ALL requirements for your bachelor’s degree this semester, you must contact the Registrar’s Office by the deadline for a final graduation check if you have not done so already.


Students completing a Masters degree this semester must contact the Graduate Office to begin the graduation application process.


As part of the final graduation check for your bachelor’s degree, you will:

  • Complete an Application for Graduation in the Registrar’s Office (A100)
  • Submit Graduation/Advisor Clearance Notes from your advisor(s) for your Major(s) and Minor(s)
  • Pay the $25 graduation fee (be sure you apply for the correct semester—declaring the wrong semester of graduation will result in having to reapply and pay an additional graduation fee.)
  • Complete clearance process in the Financial Aid Office


You will not be added to the graduation list if you have not submitted your Graduation Application and Clearance Note to the Registrar’s Office.


Students must apply for graduation in the Registrar’s Office even if they do not plan to walk in the Commencement Ceremony.   


Make sure you apply and submit all required documents by the deadline to avoid delays in receiving your degree!

If you need additional information on applying for graduation, please contact the Registrar’s Office, 580-745-2165 or 800-435-1327 ext. 2165.
