All students must apply for graduation, regardless of whether they plan to participate in the graduation ceremony. Submitting an application for graduation initiates the official review of your records, notation of graduation to your transcript, and ordering of your degree, diploma, and/or certificate.

Apply to Graduate

Review your Degree Audit Report to make sure you have met or are in the process of meeting all program requirements. You may access your Degree Audit by logging into eServices at, selecting Academic Records, then Degree Audit Report.

  • If there are issues/incomplete areas on your Degree Audit or you have questions about meeting program requirements, contact your advisor before applying to graduate.
  • If you are using transfer credits from another institution to meet graduation requirements, you are responsible for making sure that those institutions have sent official transcripts to the Records Office before applying to graduate.

After reviewing your Degree Audit, you must apply to graduate during the last semester of your program or as you complete certificate requirements. You will need your StarID and password to access the application. Once we have reviewed your records, we will send you an email with your next steps.
