Apply for Graduation

Undergraduate and Graduate Students

All students must complete the online graduation application through self-service in myGateway. Please review the important deadlines below in regards to participating in graduation ceremonies.

Online Graduation Application

This application must be submitted online through student self-service in myGateway.

Candidates who apply by the "Commencement Participation" deadline will be able to "walk"/participate in the graduation ceremony. Students that do not submit an application by that deadline, will not be allowed to participate in the commencement ceremony. Students may still apply for conferral only. Students that do not apply for graduation will not be awarded a degree.

Students may check to see if they have filed for graduation and if their application has been processed by visiting myGateway and viewing their unofficial transcript, where it will say "Pending" in the Degrees Awarded block.
