When you submit an Intent to Graduate you are asking the Registrar’s Office to validate your plan to complete your academic requirements and receive a diploma. The review process takes 5-7 business days after which you will receive an email from the Registrar’s Office confirming your plan or alerting you to issues.
If your Intent to Graduate is confirmed, 8 weeks before your ceremony you will receive an automated email inviting you to Register to Participate; if you select no when you register your participation, automated reminders will end.
If you select yes when you register your participation you will receive a second email with a link to order and download your electronic guest tickets. Note: it can take as long as fifteen minutes for your tickets to become available once you have registered.
