Apply to Graduate

  • A $75 graduation fee will be charged to your student account after you submitted your application for graduation. If you are unable to meet deadlines and your graduation is delayed to a future semester, you will be required to reapply for graduation but will not be charged an additional fee.

Please note that all degree completion letters are standard template letters and cannot be altered. After the degree has been awarded, an official certification letter must be obtained from the Office of the Registrar.
