Commencement: Application and Eligibility
Students who plan to graduate must notify the Registration and Records office in Sullivan Center, 36 South Wabash Avenue, 12th floor, by completing a Graduation Application [PDF].
Students are encouraged to meet with an academic advisor prior to registration for their final semester. Students who are registered for the courses needed to complete degree or certificate requirements are considered eligible to graduate and are charged a graduation fee. Students are notified by mail regarding the graduation fee, the graduation ceremony, and distribution of diplomas. Diplomas list the student's first, middle, and last name as given on their graduation application, unless the student indicates otherwise to the Registrar.
