Application for Graduation


A student cannot be cleared for graduation until an application for the degree has been filed with the Registrar's Office and the appropriate graduation fee has been paid. The degree application card is obtained from the Graduate School Office and filed with the Registrar for the semester in which the student expects to receive the degree. If the student does not graduate in the indicated semester, the student must reapply for graduation by contacting the Registrar's Office. Please refer to the Master's Calendar for specific deadline dates.


Once a year, the University of Arkansas offers a number of ceremonies in the month of May for graduates who have completed graduation requirements within the academic year. Graduate students are recognized at the All-University Commencement ceremony which begins at 8:45 a.m. on the second Saturday of May and runs approximately 3 hours. More commencement information is available online.
