When you are nearing the completion of your program - usually the semester before you plan to finish your degree requirements - you must file an application for graduation. There is no fee for applying to graduate. The easiest and fastest way to apply is through myBanner. After logging into myBanner, select Student, then Student Records, and Apply to Graduate. Paper applications may also be submitted to either of the Student Assistance Centers (150 Student Services in Allendale or 115C DeVos in Grand Rapids).
