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 (December and January**): September 20
  • Spring (May and August**): February 7

**Students completing degrees at the end of August or January may participate in the May commencement ceremony with the approval of the Graduate Director.

Please keep in mind: In order to participate in a ceremony, you must follow the application deadlines for that ceremony.

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.
