How do I apply for graduation?

Your academic advisor will assist you with the completion of your graduation clearance form the semester prior to your anticipated graduation date. You will also complete a form to request tickets for your commencement guests at this time if you are planning to participate in the spring commencement ceremony. Contact your academic advisor to initiate this process if you are planning to graduate next semester and have not completed a graduation audit.
