  • Application of Intent to Graduate
  • Event Schedule and Other Information

All students planning to graduate must submit an Application of Intent to Graduate form to the Registrar's Office. There is a $100 fee for the undergraduate program and a $150 fee for the graduate program which needs to be included with the form. The fee is required of all candidates for graduation, even if you choose not to participate in the ceremony. If you do not complete all of your course requirements by the graduation date, you will not graduate and will have to reapply for graduation. To reapply, you must submit a completed copy of the Application of Intent to Graduate form to the Registrar's Office and pay the $35 reapply fee by the deadline to apply for the next graduation date.

The Application of Intent to Graduate form link will be sent out early in the semester by email to the student's LETU email account during their planned graduation semester.
