Graduation Resources


Graduation Application

Due Friday of Week 1 in your second-to-last term, along with the submission of your $125 MAcOM or $175 Doctoral Graduation Fee. (This fee is applicable whether or not students walk in the annual commencement ceremony (see below)). 


Graduation Certification

In addition to the application for graduation, each student must complete the Graduation Certification Form and Exit Survey within their final month of studies. 

The Graduation Certification requires completion of the following:

  • Exit counseling online with the Financial Aid office, (if applicable)
  • Exit Interview - Schedule individually with Diane Stanley
  • Satisfaction of financial obligations with the Finance Office
