Eligibility
All degree candidates for spring 2017 and those who received degrees in summer or fall 2016 are eligible to participate in the Commencement ceremony held in Memorial Stadium. There is no need to sign up for this ceremony.

Remember; tickets may be required for the individual school and department ceremonies held in other locations.

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

Students complete the AFG online by signing into the Enroll & Pay system. Click on the Enroll & Pay link on the main menu and navigate to Degree Progress/Graduation. Click on KU Apply for Graduation.

Note: Completing the AFG does not mean course requirements are complete and your graduation is approved.  You must contact your respective schools to finalize details.
