You must complete a "Graduation Application" via BannerWeb under Student Services > Student Records > Apply to Graduate before your degree can be conferred. Graduation dates are not retroactive. If you file your application after your desired graduation date, your actual graduation date will be the next scheduled graduation. Your transcript will include a comment stating the degree completion date, but the official date will be the following semester.
If you are planning to receive a diploma in May or August, you must complete the Graduation Application no later than December 1.
If you are planning to receive a diploma in December, you must complete the Graduation Application by September 15.
