All current students must apply for graduation by completing the Undergraduate Application for Graduation located on My.IllinoisState.edu. The application must be submitted, and the graduation fee must be paid by the deadline to be considered a candidate for degree as well as to participate in the commencement ceremony.
Many students confuse graduation with the commencement ceremony; they are not the same. Graduation is the official granting of a degree after having met all degree requirements. Commencement is the ceremony recognizing any degree candidates for the current semester who choose to participate. Graduation does not take place until after the current semester’s grades are posted which actually occurs after the commencement ceremony.
For more information regarding the Commencement ceremony, please visit the Commencement Web site.
Submit an undergraduate application for Graduation along with the fee by the deadline date. Refer to the Important Dates for students for the deadline for submitting the application. The $25 graduation fee is required when applying for graduation, unless the fee is covered by an approved scholarship. Please verify your scholarship with the Student Accounts Office. Enrolled students must submit their application through My.IllinoisState.edu during the early part of the semester, on or before the date specificed in the University Calendar. Non-enrolled students must submit the Undergraduate Application for Graduation in paper form, or visit the Registrar Service Center in Moulton Hall, Room 107.
Continue checking your Academic Progress Summary and meeting with your academic advisor to ensure you have completed your degree requirements.
Graduation for Graduate Level Students is facilitated by the Graduate School.
When students are admitted to an undergraduate program they are assigned a catalog year. Students fulfill the graduation requirements specified in their assigned catalog.
