Apply for Graduation

We ask all students to fill out this application in the semester before you graduate, even if your Expected Graduation Date found in HomerConnect is correct. It is important that we collect this information, even if you missed the deadline. Ithaca College posts degrees five times a year: in May, June, August, October and December. Any student can graduate in May, August or December, while June and October are reserved for specific programs.

Expected Graduation Date:

We assume that you will graduate on your Expected Graduation Date.  This date is listed in HomerConnect and can be found under View Student Information or on your Degree Evaluation.  Both of these options are on the Student Records & Billing Information menu. If your expected graduation date is incorrect, you can use the form below to change it.  Please note that we do not monitor your progress towards your degree and therefore it is in your best interest to let us know when this date is wrong.  We base your intention to graduate entirely on this date.
