Preparing for Graduation

Image Caption

Undergraduates, have you earned at least 85 credits? You should be thinking about graduation!

Application

As a graduating senior you will need to complete an application for Undergraduate Graduation.

Before submitting an application you must meet with your academic advisor to declare your Intent To Graduate and to create a plan to complete your degree requirements.

Secondary education, double majors, and dual degree students must submit two applications, one to each department.

If you have questions about your double majors/dual degrees eligibility, contact your advisor or department chairperson as soon as possible.

Department approval is necessary in order to be eligible to participate in commencement, have your name printed in the program, and for the degree to be granted.

Students who will complete requirements for a minor or career concentration, please request verification of completion from the appropriate department to be sent to the registrar for inclusion on the final transcript.

Your graduation application initiates your graduation clearance process. The Graduation Services Team begins working with your department and college to review and finalize your degree requirements.

Deadlines to declare your Intent to Graduate for:

  • Spring commencement is November 1
  • Summer conferral is February 1
  • Fall commencement is April 1
  • Winter conferral is December 1

Please click here for the undergraduate graduation application. Late submissions of your graduation application may delay the graduation clearance process and subsequently your degree conferral.

Checking Your Degree Progress

The degree audit outlines all of the program and university requirements for graduation. You can access your degree audit through the myESU portal. Please review your degree audit periodically to ensure that you are on track to meet all degree requirements by your intent to graduate date.
