Graduation is not an automatic process. You must contact your dean's office to complete a Graduation Application before their deadline. In most academic centers, the deadline is one or two terms prior to your intended term of graduation (see graduation calendar). Upon review and final approval by your dean's office, your graduation is authorized and your diploma is ordered. You must be in good financial standing with the University to receive your diploma.

If your graduation is postponed, you must reapply through your dean's office by completing another Graduation Application.

NOTE: Your name on your Graduation Application must be identical to the way it appears on the University's student information system. You will be required to provide legal documentation to change your name. The acceptable documentation is a birth certificate, marriage certificate, divorce decree, formal court order or a valid passport.
