Apply to Graduate

Graduate students who anticipate receiving their master’s or doctoral degrees will need to complete the “Intent to Graduate” application.

Deadlines to declare your intent to graduate:

  • Fall 2023: December 1
  • Winter 2024: December 1
  • Spring 2024 (May and August**): February 9

**The university holds commencement exercises at the end of the spring semester. Students completing degrees in August, December, January, and May can participate in the Spring commencement ceremony with the approval of the Graduate office.

Your "Intent to Graduate" application initiates your graduation clearance process. The Graduate office begins working with your Graduate Coordinator to review and finalize your degree requirements.

Late submission of your graduation application will delay the graduation clearance process and may delay your degree conferral. We cannot guarantee that your name will appear in the commencement program although every effort will be made to do so.

Federal Stafford Loan recipients must complete Financial Aid Exit Counseling prior to graduation.
