Several Items Should be Considered When Preparing the Application:

1. Review general degree, major/minor, and Convocation requirements to ensure eligibility to apply for graduation in a specific term.

2. Submit a completed online Application for Graduation (available through My Belmont) to the Office of the Registrar prior to the deadline for the semester in which you intend to graduate. Application deadlines are posted on the Registrar website as well as in the academic calendar.

3. Your account will be charged a non-refundable application fee (plus any applicable late charges) the first Friday of the term of your intended graduation.

4. The Office of the Registrar reviews every application for graduation to ensure completion of all graduation requirements; only when this process is complete will a student be cleared for graduation.

5. Applications submitted after the deadline will incur an additional non-refundable late fee of $100. Please note: No application submitted after the deadline is guaranteed clearance for graduation; applications are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

6. Notify your academic advisor that you have applied for graduation.
