Students who plan to graduate must submit a Graduation Application in GUS for the term in which they intend to graduate. The Graduation Application provides the Office of the University Registrar with essential information about the student’s degree and expected graduation term/year. It also puts the student’s name on the diploma order, degree posting, and commencement lists. The application is available in GUS under the Academics tab of the Student Self-Service area. Students must have a completed Graduation Application in order to graduate for the specific term.
All students, regardless of participation in Commencement proceedings, MUST complete an Application for Graduation for the term they expect to graduate. Failure to complete the application by the stated deadlines may result in a delay in the graduation arrangements or omission from the commencement programs. If you do not complete all of the requirements for graduation, you will be required to reapply for the next appropriate term. Detailed instructions for using GUS to apply for graduation can be found here: Instructions for Applying to Graduate in GUS.
Failure to complete the Graduation Application will result in a hold on your Student Record in GUS and possibly delay your graduation processing.
