Graduation Application Deadline Dates
An application for graduation must be submitted during the term prior to completion of graduation requirements.
- Nov. 1 is the application deadline for Spring graduates.
- April 1 is the application deadline for Fall graduates.
- Online MBA students must apply for graduation at least 2 sessions before they intend to graduate.
If the application deadline falls on a non-business day, applications will be due the next university business day. Certifying applicants for graduation is a labor-intensive process that takes many months. For this reason, late applications are subject to an additional fee. Late applications submitted within two months of a graduation date pose further challenges and are charged accordingly. No application will be accepted within three weeks of a graduation date without the review and approval of the Office of the Provost.

The graduation fee must be paid even if the graduate does not participate in the commencement ceremony. The fee covers the cost of the printed diploma and the academic regalia. Late applications are subject to an additional fee depending on the severity of the missed deadline.
