Applying for Graduation

If you are planning to graduate in April 2022, you should apply for graduation now!  Early application is imperative to provide ample time for the Academic Records team to complete your graduation audit.  The audit verifies that you have completed or will complete all necessary requirements to earn your degree.  If something is missing, this allows time for you to make necessary adjustments to your schedule.

To locate the Application for Graduation in your portal, follow this path:  Students tab>Forms and Information>Student Forms>Application for Graduation.  Applications received after December 1st will incur a late fee.  


Special Circumstances Review Process

Attention Undergraduate Students: If your financial situation changed significantly during the COVID-19 pandemic, you may be eligible for additional financial aid. Since the 2021-2022 FAFSA includes income information from 2019, your financial information may have changed. Have any of the following happened to you? 

  • I lost my job or am earning less 

  • My parent(s) lost a job or are earning less, and I am considered a “dependent student” (my parent(s) information is required on the FAFSA) 

  • I have experienced or am currently experiencing homelessness 

  • I or my family had a significant expense this year, such as a medical bill that insurance did not cover 

  • I have had other changes to my ability to pay for college 

If any of these circumstances apply to you, contact us at to find out if you qualify for a financial aid adjustment through our special circumstances review process.
