Graduation & Commencement Information

It is recommended that students apply for graduation two semesters before having all requirements complete. Students must have 75 hours completed to be eligible to apply.

Commencement ceremonies are held in both May and December. Summer graduates participate in the May ceremony automatically, or can contact the Office of Registration and Records to request to ‘walk’ in December.

If a student applied for graduation and finds that they will not complete the requirements on time, login to MyISU and update the graduation date to a future term.

If a student applied for graduation and then finds that they will complete requirements earlier than expected, request the date to be moved to an earlier graduation term by emailing Christina Cantrell

Caps, gowns, and invitations can be purchased at Barns and Noble Bookstore
