This is the moment you've been waiting for
As you wrap up your days at IUPUI, it can be easy to forget details. You are invited to participate in Spring Commencement if you complete your degree requirements during the fall, spring or will complete during summer term.
There is no winter or summer Commencement ceremony.
The first step
In order to participate, there are a couple things you must do. First, you must apply to graduate before the deadline. This ensures that your name will appear in the Commencement program and you receive important updates about the ceremony. Even if you don’t attend the ceremony—and you definitely should—you still need to apply to graduate to receive your diploma.
It’s critical you apply to graduate during the semester before you intend to finish all your credits and requirements.
- Apply to graduate before these dates:
- Spring (May) graduation: October 15
- Summer (August) graduation: January 15
- Fall (December) graduation: May 15
Apply to graduate at Student Central
Do this early in your final year—if not before—to avoid missing your school’s deadline. If you applied to graduate on a previous date, but did not graduate, you must reapply.
Why you need to apply
Each school or department on campus has its own procedures for graduation. Some school recorders may need to handle licensing or certification, for example. And many students decide during their senior year to take a few extra classes to earn a certificate or minor. So, if you’re completing your degree and wish to graduate, you must declare your intent.
Once you do this, you can continue in the graduation process. Already applied? That's great! Now it’s time to ensure you've met all requirements to complete your degree and participate in Commencement.
