Current Students - Applying for Graduation

Before applying for graduation, students should review their Academic Requirements Report to ensure that they are on-track to successfully complete all requirements.   The report can be found in Gull Net - Self Service - Student Center. If there are any discrepancies in requirements within the report, students should meet with their advisor to review an academic checklist and/or university catalog.

It is vital that graduating seniors be familiar with their degree requirements and apply on-time for graduation.  Students applying for graduation by the posted deadlines will be audited for degree completion prior to their last semester at SU and notified of any missing requirements. 

Students applying for graduation should make sure to adhere to the following deadlines:

May or August Graduation - Apply by November 15th

December or January Graduation - Apply by May 15th

The graduation application should be submitted online through Gull Net following the links of Student Center - Degree Progress/Graduation - Apply for Graduation. Students encountering any questions while applying online for graduation should contact the Registrar's Office at 410-543-6150.
