Spring 2023 & Summer 2023 Application for Graduation
The appropriate degree or certificate will be conferred once all academic requirements have been met and all obligations to the college have been completed. There is no charge to apply for graduation.
Please note that only students admitted as degree-seeking students to the college may apply for graduation. Students who enroll in classes as "non-degree seeking" or "visiting" students are ineligible to apply for graduation until they have been fully admitted to the college in degree-seeking status.
Students are able to order their cap, gown, and tassel through the ASU-Beebe Bookstore. All students planning to participate in commencement must have proper regalia. The last day to purchase regalia is April 21, 2023. It is recommended that students order their regalia as early as possible to obtain proper sizes.
