Graduation Information

A candidate for graduation must file an application and completed graduation packet with the Registrar's Office (TSC 246). To receive the graduation packet students must apply online prior to the semester of the student’s intended graduation date. The application process must be completed and all fees paid in order to graduate.
(Note: the application is the first step in the process. The final step is submitting the completed graduation packet.)

Approximately one month is needed to complete the entire graduation packet process. However, you should plan on 4-8 weeks to complete the entire graduation packet process.

The completed Graduation Packet must be turned into the Registrar's Office by the following dates to graduate in that term:

  • Graduating Spring: completed packet due by March 15th (Graduation packets must be turned in by March 1st to guarantee your name will appear in the commencement book)
  • Graduating Summer: completed packet by July 15th
  • Graduating Fall: completed packet due by October 15th

Students who submit their completed graduation packet after the posted dates above will graduate the following semester. 

Graduate Students must apply for graduation through the Graduate School.

For your name to appear in the commencement program, you must turn in your completed graduation packet by the first day of class for the semester you plan to graduate.

Each student will be given a diploma cover at the commencement ceremony. If you are receiving an Associate of Science in General Studies, the commencement will be at the campus you are graduating or if you are in Logan, it will be at the Brigham City campus. Diplomas are mailed about 8–10 weeks after commencement. Final posting of degree is subject to a verification process conducted by the student's specific college.

Your diploma will be mailed to the address on your graduation packet. Please make sure this address is correct. If it is not, you can then update the address on ACCESS and then inform the Registrar's Office, via email, about the change. Diplomas will be mailed two to three months after the semester ends. Please note if you wish to have your diploma sent via certified mail, you may do so by paying a $6.15 fee at the Registrar’s Office.

If you do not attend Commencement, you may pick up your diploma cover in the Registrar’s Office. If you want your diploma cover mailed, there will be a $6.15 postage fee for domestic shipping and $26.50 for international shipping.

To change courses listed on your graduation application, request a Supplement to Graduation Application from the Registrar's Office or your college. List course changes and then secure signatures of Advisor, Department Head, and Dean. The college will forward the form to the Registrar's Office.

Students and faculty should be aware that the Registrar's Office will not be checking for repeated courses. This is up to the student to inform the Registrar's Office of possible repeats.

All incomplete grades, correspondence courses or changes affecting your academic record, must be completed and on file in the Registrar's Office by the last day of your last semester.

A candidate who is within 30 hours of completing a Bachelors Degree and who desires to apply courses to an additional degree, must file a split form prior to the posting of semester grades. Contact the Registrar's Office for more information.

Please be aware that if you register for classes after your intended date of graduation, you will need to open a matriculation through the Admissions Office for that semester. You should also know that once your degree is posted no changes can be made to your undergraduate transcript, (e.g. add a minor or emphasis, repeat a class, etc).

Dual majors must have the appropriate signatures for each major.
