Degrees have been awarded for students that applied for and completed all degree requirements in Fall 2022.

You can verify by checking your unofficial transcript in MyPortal.

Diplomas should be sent out in 6 to 8 weeks.

Graduation is the official awarding of degrees. Participation in a commencement ceremony does not equal graduation. Students must meet all graduation requirements before a degree is conferred.  Commencement is an end-of-fall or -spring celebration for students projected to successfully complete all of their graduation requirements by the end of that fall, spring or summer semester.  The official date the Office of the Registrar awards degrees can be found on the academic calendar.

February 1, 2021 is the last day to submit an undergraduate Application to Graduate in Spring 2021.  Visit for additional information.

The last day to submit an Application to Graduate in Spring 2016 is February 1, 2016!
