  • Click on the “Records” channel, normally located on the right side of the page under the “Registration” channel.
  • Click on the “Apply to Graduate” button and follow the instructions.
  • Before submitting, verify that all your program information is listed correctly on your application:
    • Your major(s), minor(s), and certificates.
    • Please be sure that your name is spelled and punctuated exactly as you want it to appear on your diploma.
  • If any information is incorrect, please contact your advisor before submitting your application.
  • Once you have submitted a graduation application through Self-Service Banner, click on View Graduation Application and review the information to be sure that it is correct.

Attention: Effective December 2018 and going forward, the School of Sport, Tourism and Hospitality Management will no longer hold a summer graduation ceremony.  Instead, anticipated summer graduates are invited to participate in the preceding May, or the upcoming December ceremony, based on eligibility.
