Deadlines & Fees

Apply for Graduation

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. Due to COVID-19, the fall 2020 deadline had been moved to June 1.
  • 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.
