Information for graduates

Register for the May 2023 Commencement Ceremony!


In addition to registering for commencement, students completing their degree in Spring 2023 must have completed a degree application online through Self-Service.

To fill out the graduation application:

  • Login to and select Graduation Overview.
  • Select apply next to your degree program, then fill in the form.

The graduate application lets you specify the name you want printed on your diploma. We strongly encourage you to provide a legal name for the diploma; however, for those who may want to use a preferred name instead, please see TU’s preferred diploma name policy on the TU portal: Office of the Registrar — Preferred Name Declarations (

Please note: The degree application is for degree conferral only and distribution of future diplomas.  Commencement registration is separate.
