Apply to Graduate

Congratulations! You're almost ready to graduate. But what are the steps?

First, review the information provided on the Registrar's Office Degree Application website.

Next, contact your major and minor departments to request an evaluation for graduation. For the marketing program, about two weeks before the degree application deadline, contact the department manager to request a major evaluation.

The department manager will review your request and email you with next steps.
