Applying for Graduation (AFG) and Names listed in the printed commencement program
March 1 is the last day undergraduates and law students can submit their Application for Graduation (AFG) to ensure their names are included in the printed Commencement program.  The March 1 deadline also applies to master’s and doctoral candidates, though their actual degree requirements may not be due until late April.

Note: All students that wish to have their names included in the printed program should be certain that the commencement book hold box is NOT selected.  Please review these instructions: http://sis.ku.edu/sites/sis.ku.edu/files/Apply_For_Graduation.pdf
