Graduation Application

Graduation (conferral of degrees) and Commencement are separate events. 

  • Commencement is a day of celebration held once per year in June. In order to participate in Commencement, Students need to receive approval from their Faculty Advisor, documented by the successful submission of a Graduation Application.  
  • The Graduation Application must be submitted the quarter before the Student wishes to graduate and no later than the first month of their final quarter. The completed application will be reviewed by the Registrar’s Office, which will then initiate the process for your degree completion, allowing you to graduate from the University. For more information and access to the intent to graduate form, visit our graduation information page.

Commencement Application/Tickets

Each student is guaranteed four tickets. Please indicate whether or not you will need your four (4) guaranteed tickets or if you will only want 2 or 3 of your tickets. Each student may also be wait-listed for additional tickets on a first-come, first-serve basis, up to 6 total tickets. The link to the registration application is here:
