Every student must apply to graduate, even if they don't plan to attend a Commencement ceremony. A $25 application fee is required, which is assessed per degree (example: master of arts, associate in science, etc.) and per completed application.

If a student applies to graduate and then determines that they do not meet the requirements, the student must re-apply for the correct graduation date. An additional $25 application fee will be charged.

Application fees are not refundable or transferable.
