For additional questions regarding Concurrent/Early Enrollment, please contact the Concurrent Enrollment Office at (801) 957-4760 or your Academic Advisor.
Traditional Degree-Seeking Students & Apprenticeship Students apply through MyPage:
Please ensure that the following information is correct before proceeding with the graduation application: Name, Major and Mailing Address. To change or update your major or mailing address, please click on the Student Tab of MyPage and select Personal Information Change. To change or update your name please contact the Data Center at (801) 957-4283.
After you ensure that your information is correct, please Apply for Graduation online. From MyPage, go to Student Tab, then Student Portal and click on Graduation Application. Follow the instructions to complete the application.
Please note that the paper application has been discontinued for traditional students.
After you have submitted your graduation application, a graduation status message will be sent to your Bruin email account within 3-10 business days. If your application is denied, please meet with an academic advisor to discuss your missing requirements before contacting the Graduation Office. You have one year from the graduation semester indicated on your application to finish your requirements. After that time a new application and fee will be required to graduate.
The Commencement ceremony is held each year in May. There is no fee for the Commencement ceremony; however each student is required to purchase a cap and gown. Caps, gowns, invitations and class rings may be purchased from the Taylorsville Campus bookstore. Click this link for more important details: Commencement Brochure.
Check on your graduation status on MyPage Student Tab under Academic Transcript. The transcript will show degree(s) awarded. The date will be visible if a degree has been awarded.
For any questions or concerns please contact the Graduation Office.
Diplomas are mailed out 6-8 weeks following the last day of the semester, barring any unforeseen circumstances. Diplomas will be mailed to the mailing address in our records; you are responsible for making any updates that may be necessary. To change or update your mailing address please log onto your MyPage and under the Student Tab click on the Personal Information Menu, then click on Update Address(es) and Phone(s).
If you have not received your diploma in 6-8 weeks after the last day of the semester, check your unofficial transcript in your Student Portal to see if your degree was conferred. If it was conferred, you must report not receiving your diploma to the Graduation Office. You should also check to see if you have any financial holds on your account. A diploma will not be sent if you have a hold on your record. If your degree was not conferred, please check with the Graduation Office.
