Application for Graduation
All students must apply for graduation, regardless of whether they plan to participate in the graduation ceremony. Submitting an application for graduation initiates the official review of your records, notation of your graduation to your transcripts, and ordering of your degree, diploma, and/or certificate.
Before you apply to graduate: Review your DARS (Degree Audit Report) to make sure you have met or are in the process of meeting all program requirements. You may access your DARS by logging into eServices at
Grades and Transcripts, then Interactive Degree Audit Report.
- If there are issues/incomplete areas on your DARS or you have questions about meeting program requirements, contact your program advisor before applying to graduate.
- If you are using transfer credits from another institution to meet graduation requirements, you are responsible for making sure that those institutions have sent official transcripts to the Student Records Office before applying to graduate.
