Apply for Graduation

Graduation is the process of paying a fee to get your actual degree and finishing all your academic requirements.

To be eligible to graduate and receive your diploma, complete these steps:

1. Apply for Graduation

Only students who have 90 completed credits and are certified in their major are eligible to apply for graduation. The Undergraduate Degree Application is available online through myWSU student center. Graduation status (eligible, applied, approved, awarded) can be found on the academics tab in your student center. Steps for completing the application can be found here. The graduation application fee is $60. Students who do not apply by the initial deadline will incur a late fee, please see important dates and deadlines for details.

2. Review Your Degree Audit

After applying for graduation, review your Academic Requirements Report in myWSU (Student Center>Academics>Academic Requirements) and report any discrepancies to your academic adviser. Please check your Academic Requirements Report carefully. If you have questions about University or General Education requirements, contact your academic adviser.

3. Complete Degree Requirements

All academic requirements must be completed at the time of graduation. This includes junior writing portfolio, University, General Education and degree program requirements.

4. Update Name in myWSU

If you have changed your name since applying for graduation, please notify the Office of the Registrar, Undergraduate Degrees Area. You will also need to submit a Request for Name Change form to Payroll Services, University Name and Address File Support Unit. The last name (surname) on your graduation application must be the same as the last name (surname) on your transcript. Your diploma is prepared from the information on your graduation application.

5. Update Address in myWSU

Update your mailing and home addresses in myWSU. Your diploma will be mailed to your home address after degrees have been conferred, approximately two months following your graduation date. Make sure that you notify the Office of the Registrar immediately if your address changes during that time.

6. Settle All Financial Obligations

Review your student account in myWSU, and also check your account 30 days after graduation. Any balance due on your student account will hold your diploma.
