Apply to Graduate


Though we accept graduation applications up through the end of the semester, it is recommended that students submit their application during the semester prior to the one in which their requirements will be complete in order for an audit of your degree requirements to take place in a timely manner.

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).

For questions regarding the application process, please contact the Records office, 150 Student Services Building, (616) 331-3327.

If you have additional questions regarding your eligibility to graduate, please contact the Records Office at (616) 331-3327 or
