Application for Degree
Each candidate for a degree must file a written application, accompanied by the graduation fee, in the Registrar's Office.
All documentation and official transcripts of transferred credits must be on file in the Registrar's Office at the time an application is submitted.
SVSU graduates students three times a year:
End of fall semester (December Commencement)
End of winter semester (May Commencement)
End of summer semester (August Commencement)
Timeline: Consult the registration and semester calendars for application deadlines
Fall applications are accepted beginning with the first Fall registration.
Winter applications are accepted beginning with the first Winter registration.
Summer applications are accepted beginning with the first Spring/Summer registration.
If a degree audit indicates that a candidate is not ready to graduate, the candidate is not eligible for commencement and the application is made inactive.
Late applications or missing documentation may cause the candidate to be moved to a later graduation date.
