Apply for Graduation

The deadline to apply for May 2020 graduation is Saturday, February 15, 2020. 

  • You must apply online for graduation by logging into ONE. Under the “Academics” tab, find the “Apply to Graduate” link, select “spring 2020,” fill out your information and click “submit.” Please ignore the "Find your graduation planner" link as it is not relevant to your graduation requirements.  There is no need to complete the convocation ceremony information unless you are participating in the main campus ceremony.  The law ceremony is separate.

Graduation Ceremonies

The rescheduled Spring 2020 graduation ceremonies are slated for Saturday, August 8, and Sunday, August 9.

All May 2020 graduation candidates – whether you participate in the virtual ceremony or not – may also attend the in-person ceremony.

We will continue to communicate updates as we have them.
