|Graduation Term||Deadline for Application*|
|August||August 1st **|
In order to graduate, students must apply by completing the online Graduation Application. Students are encouraged to apply to graduate once they’ve completed 90 credits or more. A one-time non-refundable fee of $30 is applied to the student's account in SOLAR and must be paid within 10 days.
A degree evaluation will be completed and an email will be sent to the student indicating eligibility. This evaluation is not designed to serve as a contract. It is meant to provide assistance to students in planning to meet all degree requirements. It is ultimately a student’s responsibility to make certain final degree requirements are met in order to graduate. Approval of degree completion rests with the Office of the Registrar and the student's major department.
If you need to change your graduation date, please complete another Graduation Application. There is no fee for the change.
For assistance in the graduation application process, students should contact the Office of the Registrar, WYLL D189, 262-595-2497.
Commencement ceremonies honoring our graduates are held twice a year, one in December and one in May. August graduates are invited to attend December commencement activities.
