Slippery Rock University

Application for Graduation

A student is responsible for applying to graduate on MySRU, and for fulfilling all requirements for the degree in accordance with the regulations of that program and the university.

Students who meet all graduation requirements in a given term but fail to apply for graduation before the semester ends will be graduated at the end of the semester in which their application is recorded in the Office of Academic Records and Registration, not the term during which they completed their coursework.

Students must meet all graduation requirements by the official end of the semester in which they have applied to graduate. Failure to do so (e.g., incomplete grades in any course, “X” grades in required courses, no application) will result in extending the student’s graduation date to the end of the term the work or requirement is eventually completed.

Students must apply for graduation on MySRU for fall, spring, and summer. A paper application is required for winter. The completed application should reach the Office of Academic Records and Registration by October 1 for December graduation, December 1 for January graduation, March 1 for May graduation, and June 15 for summer graduation. Late applications must be submitted on paper applications available on the Academic Records and  Registration website or in the office at 107 Old Main. No diploma fee is required.

Students who are eligible for a Pennsylvania teaching certificate should apply to the College of Education at the time they apply for graduation. A certification fee is payable at the time of application. The College of Education will provide certification details upon request.
