How to submit a graduation application

Virginia Commonwealth University confers degrees only three times per year in May, August, and December as outlined in the Bulletin. Each student who expects to complete the degree requirements by the end of a semester (fall, spring, or summer) must apply to graduate by the deadline published on the university academic calendar; typically this deadline is two to three weeks after the first day of classes.

Graduation applications are submitted electronically to Records and Registration via eServices. As part of this process, we strongly recommend that you confirm your program information matches your major on DegreeWorks. Please review the instructions for viewing your program information.

You will not be automatically alerted that your graduation application has been successfully submitted or received. We encourage you to confirm by viewing the status of your graduation application on eServices.

There is no fee to submit a graduation application.
