Petition to Graduate

Please fill out the Petition to Graduate form in the Student Portal.

Please allow 5-7 business days for your form to be processed. This completed form, including required fees, must be submitted to release all transcripts, diplomas, and verifications for degrees awarded. After processing of this form your account will be charged the $150 graduation fee plus any applicable sales tax. This fee pays for the final audit of your degree, your official transcript, and the processing, printing, packaging, and shipping of your diploma. It is your responsibility to pay this fee before your transcripts, diploma, or verification of degree awarded can be released. Despite what may be reflected on your student portal ledger card, federal student aid funds cannot be used to pay this fee. Please contact your Student Advisor to make payment arrangements once your account has been charged.

The date of degree conferral recorded on your transcript and on your diploma will reflect the date you complete all academic degree requirements. Degree completion is generally recorded on a student's official transcript within 30 days of completion of ALL program requirements. Diplomas are generally ordered within 30 days of completion of all program requirements and payment of all related tuition and fees. Ordered diplomas may take 6-8 weeks to arrive. Diplomas and transcripts will be withheld until this document is submitted and all accounts at the University are paid in full.
