Apply for Graduation

All students must apply for graduation. The application must be submitted at the beginning of the term in which you plan to complete your degree requirements. This application is required, regardless of whether or not you plan on participating in the graduation commencement ceremony. Conferral of a degree cannot occur if an application is not received. The graduation application begins the academic certification and degree conferral process.

Students who have applied for graduation by the established deadline and have successfully completed all academic requirements are eligible to participate in the commencement ceremony. Students who do not apply for graduation by the deadline forfeit their inclusion in the commencement ceremony and program.

How to Apply for Graduation

The Application for Graduation is located on the goStockton Portal on the Student Services Tab in the Registration Tools box. The link is located in Registration Tools. The graduation fee is used to cover the cost of commencement regalia, diplomas and covers, the yearbook, the commencement reception, and other graduation-related expenses. The $175 fee will be charged to your account within 10-15 business days. The fee for late applications after the deadline is $225.

If you are unsure about your graduation status, review your degree audit or seek advising from your preceptor or the Center for Academic Advising. If your graduation application is denied, you will need to reapply at the beginning of the term in which you plan to complete your degree requirements.
