Graduation

Are You on Track to Graduate?

Graduation is the formal completion of all degree requirements. Once you've met the conditions required for your program or certificate, your degree, major and/or certificate is recorded on your official transcript. Your graduation date is the last day of the term in which you completed your program requirements.

Graduation Application Process
