Are you close to completing your bachelor's degree? Congratulations!
To earn your bachelor's degree, you will need to:
- Have a graduation audit completed with an academic advisor.
- Submit an application for degree to an academic advisor.
- Optional: participate in the commencement ceremony.

A graduation audit is required when you are close to completing your degree and summarizes your remaining requirements into a one-page document. It is not the same as your degree audit report (DARS) which lists all requirements including those you have already fulfilled.
When to Request Your Graduation Audit: You can request an audit any time you have 33 or fewer credits (including in progress courses) remaining to graduate. It is recommended you request one before registration begins for your final semester.
How to Request Your Graduation Audit: An academic advisor can complete your audit during a scheduled appointment and clarify any questions you have about remaining requirements.
If needed, you can complete the Graduation Audit Request form instead and submit it to Student Academic Services. An advisor will then e-mail you the audit. If you have questions about the audit, please make an appointment with an advisor. Audits are not typically done during advising without an appointment (walk-ins).
An application for degree is required for an advisor to approve you for graduation.
When to Submit Your Application for Degree: The application should be submitted at the end of the semester before you plan to graduate but no later than the third week of your final semester. The exact deadline is indicated on the University Calendar.
How to Submit Your Application for Degree: You must meet with an advisor (in-person or via phone) to submit your application for degree before the deadline. Click the Application for Degree link below, click "Application for Degree," and select the "Undergraduate" tab. Be sure to sign the form; do not simply type your name. Submit the completed, signed form to your advisor. Your advisor will then sign as the designee and forward your application to the registrar's office for processing.
Certificates: Students pursuing certificates can also find the Application for Certificate at the link above. This should be submitted at the same time as your application for degree.
All other information about graduation and the commencement ceremony can be found on the registrar's website.
