Congratulations! If records indicate you may be ready
to complete your degree requirements at the end of Spring
or Summer 2012, it's up to you to get the graduation
process rolling and sign up to participate in Commencement
on campus where family and friends can celebrate your
accomplishment. Here's what you can do now to ensure a
smooth graduation experience.
All graduate and undergraduate students who plan to graduate must complete the following three steps:
1. Apply for graduation
Complete the Formal Application for Graduation indicating your intention to finish requirements for your degree within the academic year. See your academic advisor to review degree requirements and submit this form.
2. Request your official diploma
Complete a Diploma Form at http://www.usi.edu/reg/diploma.asp. Provide your name on the form exactly as you want it printed on your USI diploma. (Otherwise, your name will appear as it is listed in the student information system. There is a $25 fee for reprinting a diploma.)
3. Tell us where to mail your diploma
Create a Diploma Mailing Address through MyUSI Self-Service. Your diploma will be mailed to that address. If you do not provide an address, your diploma will be available for pickup at the Office of the Registrar six to eight weeks after the end of the semester.
Students who plan to participate in a Commencement ceremony have an additional step.
4. Make a reservation for Commencement if you plan to participate
Go to http://www.usi.edu/commencement to make a reservation for Commencement. Participation is optional. A reservation is required if you plan to participate. Five Commencement ceremonies will be held in the Physical Activities Center (PAC) on the USI campus. Commencement for graduate students is April 27, 2012. Commencement for undergraduate students by college is April 28, 2012. Seating is limited for all ceremonies.
