Apply to graduate

When undergraduate students have completed 75% or more of the credits applicable toward your degree, you will be automatically scheduled to graduate. If you wish to apply early, the how-to guide below will provide you step-by-step instructions.

Please note:

  • Once you have been scheduled for graduation, if at any point in time your graduation term becomes incorrect or your plans change, submit a Request to Change Expected Graduation Term form.
  • Unless you indicate otherwise, the primary name (i.e., legal name) on your record will be printed on your diploma, which will be mailed to your mailing address. You may set a degree name and add a diploma address at any time. However, if your diploma has already been mailed, any changes made online will not be reflected.
