Each candidate for a degree must file a written application, accompanied by the $50 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, at the end of fall semester (December Commencement), at the end of winter semester (May Commencement), and at the end of summer semester (August Commencement). 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. Consult the registration and semester calendars for application deadlines.
Every student in the Honors Program needs to fill out the Notification of Graduation Form. Because Honors student degree applications are not flagged as such, it is the responsibility of the individual Honors student to notify the Honors Program of their anticipated graduation so that recognition can be given to them. This includes inclusion in the Commencement Program, Convocation and the Convocation Program and recognition for their thesis work.
