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 15
  • Spring (May): February 15
  • Summer (August): May 9**

**Students completing degrees at the end of August or January may participate in the May commencement ceremony with the approval of the Graduate Dean. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND: In order to participate in a ceremony, you must follow the application deadlines for that ceremony.

Late submission of your graduation application will delay the graduation clearance process and may delay your degree conferral.
