Graduation


    How do I apply for graduation?

    Students who plan to finish all degree requirements must submit an online graduation application by the deadline for the semester of graduation, published on the Academic Calendar. To access the application, go to the Student Records link under the Academics tab in the myIIT portal (detailed instructions). Please note, master’s level students must have earned a minimum of 15 credits, while Ph.D. students must have earned a minimum of 69 credits, in order to access the online application. Once the application is processed, the graduation application fee will be billed to your student account. Graduate certificate students should use the Application for Graduate Certificate (Form G528) to apply for graduation.

    When will I receive my diploma?
    You will receive your diploma during the commencement ceremony, IF you have met all degree requirements by the published deadlines for the semester in which you applied for graduation, using the Form G527 Graduation Application. If you fail to meet all requirements, you must apply for reconsideration, by filing a new Form G527 Graduation Application, for the next semester. In this case, your diploma will be available for pick-up or mailing, from the Office of the Registrar. The diploma will be published at the end of term, in which all requirements have been met, and at the conclusion of the semester.
