We will no longer accept applications for the August 2022 cycle after August 3. Our next graduation cycle will be for the December Graduation Cycle and will open in late September. While there is no ceremony for the August cycle, August graduates may participate in the following December Ceremony if they have not participated in a previous ceremony under a special consideration status. All diplomas for the August graduates will be mailed within 4-6 weeks after the August 31, 2022 conferral date.

Dual-Degree Applicants:

Students participating in Dual Degrees – such as MBA/BBA, PharmD/MBA, BA/BBA, etc. – will need to submit two graduation applications (one for each degree).

Special Consideration Students:

If you were previously approved to participate in a ceremony under a special consideration status (6 Hour Rule, Law 3 Hour Rule, etc), per the paperwork that was submitted for the special consideration status, the student must reapply to be considered for graduation. A student who participated only in a ceremony under a special consideration status, does not officially graduate until they reapply in their final term of completion and all requirements are completed.
