Graduating Seniors

Register to Graduate with the Registrar and the Honors College

When you plan to graduate, please follow the instructions on the Registrar's website  so your transcripts can be audited. Typically emails are sent out at the beginning of every Fall semester from the Honors College office to Seniors asking for graduation date. In order to have the Frederik Meijer Honors College designation on your diploma and transcripts, please respond to that email or email the Honors Office at and inform them with the semester you plan to graduate.  

How do I know if my requirements are completed?

Please visit the Academic Advising page for instructions on how to set up an appointment with one of our Advisors. Contact the office to set the appointment by email or phone (616) 331-3219. Once the office is notified of your graduation date, by taking the steps above, you will also be notified if your requirements are not met.
