How to Apply to Graduate

To apply to graduate, please schedule and appointment with your advisor.

General Ceremony Information

Every year, spring graduation ceremonies are held in May, shortly following the end of each semester. While students can complete their degrees during summer semester, there is no summer graduation ceremony. Students who graduate in summer and would like to participate in a graduation ceremony must arrange to do so during the spring ceremonies. 
The main graduation ceremony is typically scheduled in the morning at Folsom Field. More information on this ceremony can be found on the Commencement site. In addition, the sociology department hosts a departmental graduation ceremony and reception.
