With fall finals looming, it may seem early to be planning for the spring semester's end, but this year's seniors need to begin preparations for their May graduation now. The deadline for Spring 2014 graduates to apply for graduation is just two weeks away: December 15, 2013.
The December 15 deadline applies to soon-to-be graduates of all degrees: associate's, bachelor's and master's.
The deadline for all Summer 2014 graduates who plan to walk in the May graduation ceremony follows soon after: February 15, 2014.
These advance deadlines are designed to ensure the Registrar’s Office has ample time to review each student's transcripts before their final semester begins. This way, if a student does still need a class or must meet other overlooked requirements, it will not be too late to register for and complete the credits before the end of the school year.
Graduation applications are run through the mySUU portal and include an online degree audit, possible consultation with an academic advisor and a $15 application fee. The completion of the graduation application is each student's responsibility and is necessary to graduate. All late applications will incur a $50 late fee.
Graduation ceremonies for Southern Utah University’s Class of 2014 will be held throughout the day on Friday, May 2, 2014. A timeline to guide students through their final months at SUU includes:
December 2013 - Apply for graduation (12/15 deadline for spring 2014 grads)
