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
  • Fall 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.

  • As a graduate student, they are within six hours of completing his/her degree by May 4, 2012.

A student who files a walker applications must also submit an application for degree at the same time for the term in which he/she will complete the degree requirements.

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

The deadline to submit a graduation application as a "walker" is January 13, 2012.
