Graduation Application Deadlines

Don't forget that you must apply for graduation. Applications are available in the Registrar's Office, at the Registration Counter in Griz Central or online at the Registrar's website.

Submitting the application one year in advance allows time for your major department and the Registrar's Office to check for any problems while there is still time to correct them.

Deadline Dates

There is a $30 graduation fee (or $45 if turned in during the late period) which is to be paid at the Cashiers in Griz Central. Once the application has been approved by the major department, pick up the application from the department and have it in hand when paying the fee. The graduation fee is a one-time fee for students seeking an undergraduate degree or certificate.
