Graduation Application

To graduate, review your degree requirements in Degree Works with your academic advisor or program director. You must also fulfill several academic and administrative requirements. Once you confirm with your advisor that you meet all your degree requirements in Fall 2020, Spring 2021 or Summer 2021, you may apply for graduation.

Apply for graduation through Banner Web during the semester in which you anticipate completing your degree requirements.

The application for graduation may be found in Student Records under Student and Financial Aid on Banner Web. If you do not complete your degree after applying, you'll need to re-apply in the next semester by emailing records@morehouse.edu.

A one-time and non-refundable application fee of $503.00 is automatically added to your account when you submit your application. The fee is due immediately after you submit your application.

After applying, you may not withdraw your application. You may, however, move your graduation to the semester in which you'll complete your graduation requirements.
