Graduation Checklist

  • In order to be eligible to receive a degree at the end of the current academic session, you should have applied for Graduation by the deadline listed in myPurdue. You can find the link and deadlines in myPurdue: Destination Graduation channel. For information on how to apply to graduate, go here. Check with your academic advisor in your college/school's academic advising office to confirm you are on track to graduate in the term you applied to graduate.

  • If you have any concerns, check with your academic advisor early in the semester to verify that your degree requirements are being met. You may want to order a transcript so that you can clearly see your academic record by semester.

  • Beware of senioritis. It's easy to be distracted. Check minimum GPA and credit requirements for your plan of study.

  • Make sure you have no encumbrances (such as financial aid final interview or money owed for parking tickets, student health center services, library fines, lab breakage fees, etc.). You will not receive your degree until encumbrances have been cleared.

  • Provide your current and future address to the Office of the Registrar via myPurdue or at STEW 176.

  • Midway through the semester you will receive information from the registrar to verify your name, major, hometown, etc. Respond promptly. A few weeks later you will receive a second mailing about your cap and gown and commencement tickets.
