Applying for Graduation

Students must submit an application to graduate online via OASIS Self Service; please see the instructions to Apply for Graduation online or see your Advisor for more information.

Students are highly encouraged to participate in the May commencement ceremony.
Diplomas will be mailed after all degrees have been verified, approximately 2-4 weeks after the degree has been conferred.
