Step 1: Review Your Student Record

  • Confirm that all programs of study are correctly noted. If necessary, declare or un-declare majors, minors, or concentrations. Instructions for declaring and the Request to Remove Major, Minor, and Concentration form can be found here
  • Your majors, minors, and concentrations must be correct in Banner before you apply to graduate.

Step 2: Complete the Graduation Application

  • The graduation application is available for seniors via the "Apply to Graduate" link on the Student Profile homepage.
  • The graduation application is open from April 1st through September 20th for students wishing to graduate in the following year. Note that there is a $25 late fee for applications received after the deadline.
  • Students should choose their graduation term based on when they will be taking their last class. 
  • Please read the application instructions carefully, as students can only complete the application once.
  • Once the graduation application is received, the $200 graduation fee will be assessed to student accounts for the term in which they apply to graduate. This fee is assessed regardless of commencement participation. 
  • To view the status of the application, click the blue "Active" hyperlink in the 'Graduation Information' section of the Student Profile homepage, to the right of the profile picture. 

Step 3: Review Your Degree Evaluation

  • Run your degree evaluation from your Student Profile homepage. 
  • Meet with your advisor and/or chair to review your remaining degree requirements.
  • Submit any requests for changes to your major, minor, concentration, or core course requirements via an Academic Petition (i.e. course substitutions, waivers, etc.).
  • Confirm all approved petitioned program exceptions are notated on your degree evaluation; contact the Registrar’s Office to report discrepancies.
  • If you are completing a Self-Designed major/minor, please submit a copy of your major/minor contract to the appropriate Dean's Office for approval.
  • If you have taken (or plan to take) coursework elsewhere, be sure to send final official transcripts directly to the Registrar’s Office for processing. Hand-delivered transcripts or transcripts that are issued to students are not considered official. Additional transfer credit information can be found here.
  • Students must be meeting all of their GPA, credit hour, and course requirements on their degree evaluation in order to graduate.
