Graduation Information

Please refer to the Xavier University Commencement Information Website for more information regarding commencement exercises.
 

Graduating Students

Candidates for degrees must have met all requirements for the degree (see University Catalog).

Formal applications for graduation must be filed in the Office of the Registrar by:

  • Fall 2014 application deadline:
    Friday, October 3, 2014
  • Spring 2015 application deadline:
    Friday, January 23, 2015
  • Summer 2015 application deadline:
    Friday, May 29, 2015

The online graduation application is available through the Student Services link within Self-Service on the Xavier Student Hub.

A one-time $50 graduation application fee per degree is charged when a student applies for graduation. In addition, a $50 late fee is charged if the application is received after the published application deadline in any term. If degree requirements are not completed by the end of the semester for which the student has applied, the student must reapply for graduation by the application deadline in the next term in which he/she will complete degree requirements. The student is NOT charged the $50 graduation application when re-applying. The $50 late fee WILL be assessed, however, if appropriate.

Please refer to the Xavier Bookstore website for cap and gown information and purchases.
 

Non-Graduating Students

Students who know they will not complete degree requirements, but who wish to participate in the May commencement ceremony may submit a graduation application to participate if they are in good academic standing and if:

  • As an undergraduate student, they are within 12 hours of completing his/her degree by the graduation date.
  • As a graduate student, they are within six hours of completing his/her degree by the graduation date.

Participants will be charged the $50 graduation application fee when they submit the graduation application, as well as the $50 late fee, if appropriate.

There is a special section on the graduation application to indicate your actual graduation date.

The deadline to submit a graduation application as a participant is the Spring graduation application deadline.
