To be eligible to participate in commencement you must first apply to graduate and be preliminarily cleared by the Office of the Registrar. Each graduation candidate who applies on time (before posted deadline*) is charged a $25.00 non-refundable graduation fee when they apply. This fee is separate from any of the optional fees that may be incurred for commencement participation (e.g., flowers, announcements, etc.) and is charged regardless of your commencement plans.
