The $50.00 graduation application processing fee/cap & gown fee is required prior to posting your degree audit; the fee doubles if paid after Fall 2017 application deadline–September 8, 2017. Retain your receipt # as proof of payment because your application will not be audited (so as to clear and post your degree) without payment. To be sure, you must (1) complete the graduation application and (2) pay the $50.00 application fee by or before September 8, 2017; otherwise, the application fee doubles to $100.
