Graduation Information

In order to make sure that you are on track for graduation and to complete the required forms, the semester prior to your anticipated graduation date, you need to do the following:

  • Make an appointment with your Health Services Advisor to complete the Formal Application for Graduation Form.
  • Complete the Diploma Form online (make sure you select whether you want USI to mail your diploma to you or if you prefer to pick it up in person).

The Diploma Form contains your graduation information, including your name as you want it to appear on your diploma and in the commencement program (proper spelling, upper/lower case, middle name or initial, etc).

If no Diploma Form is submitted, the student's current name on record with the University will be used when printing the commencement program and diploma.
