Graduation Filing Period for fall 2020 consideration for early registration option

In order to give students who are close to graduation an advantage in registering for the remaining classes needed in their last semester, students may apply for an early registration appointment by submitting an Early Application to Graduate in the semester before their planned graduation date.

Students taking advantage of this opportunity will receive early registration (one time only) for the semester they intend to graduate.
