Graduating seniors: Do want your name in the commencement program? Apply for graduation by Monday, Oct. 15.

Students who have not yet applied for graduation and plan to participate in the fall commencement ceremony need to complete the online application through the myUT portal.

A program listing all graduation candidates, their colleges, programs and majors will be distributed before and during the commencement ceremony.

Candidates who apply to graduate after Oct. 15 will not have their names appear in the commencement program.

While completing the online graduation application, you will be asked to enter your name as you want it to appear on your diploma, as well as in the commencement program, using your legal last name.

If you are earning more than one degree, complete a separate application for each degree.

An online application must be completed in order to graduate even if a student does not intend to participate in commencement.

Instructions to aid students in completing the application may be found at
