Graduation

Follow these steps to graduate:

  • during the semester before you intend to graduate, complete the Application for Graduation Form 
  • present it to your academic adviser for review and approval
  • give the adviser approved form to the Educational Psychology Department Secretary along with necessary fees and substantiating materials

The EPS Staff will give it to the EPS Department Chair for review and approval. The department will send the approved Application for Graduation Form to the Graduate College for review and approval.

Keep in mind that:

  • commencement rehearsal is usually held in the Walkup Skydome on the Thursday prior to graduation
  • after the graduation ceremony, the College of Education also conducts a commencement ceremony for its graduates and their guests on the same day; degree candidates are required to be in formal academic regalia for both ceremonies
  • photographs of each graduate receiving the diploma will be taken and are available to purchase; to streamline the ceremony, the taking of photographs near the platform by family or friends is discouraged
  • retainable cap, gown, hood, and tassel regalia may be purchased at the university bookstore; personalized or generic graduation announcements may also be purchased
  • diplomas are prepared and mailed to all graduates in mid-July or October
