Step 1: Verify the pop-up blocker has been turned off.
Step 2: Log into your SOAR account.
Step 3: Select the Student Center Tile.
Step 4: From the "other academic" menu, select either Application for Certificate or Application for Graduation from the drop down menu.
Step 5: Read all application instructions carefully.
Step 6: Enter your post-graduation mailing address; current phone number; whether you are completing a dissertation, thesis, doctoral project, or not applicable; whether this is your first application for graduation*; and your expected term of graduation. Please Note: Diplomas are typically mailed 6-8 weeks after the commencement ceremony. Your post-graduation mailing address should reflect that time frame.
Step 7: Once your application populates, review carefully for accuracy. If you received a "SAVED" message, but your application does not appear, your pop-up blocker is still turned on. You will need to turn off your pop-up blocker and start over.
Step 8: Pay Application Fee, collect appropriate signatures, and submit application, proof of payment, and plan of study or degree-progress-report via email to your Graduate Degree Auditor, Sue Fayard or Michael Howell, by the posted deadline. (Online students may submit their completed application and required documents via email to their advisor for signatures.)
