The deadline to apply for the May 2014 graduation and commencement is Saturday, Feb. 1.

It is recommended that soon-to-be graduates meet with their academic advisers to make sure that their student files in Registration and Records are complete. All documents, such as transcripts, grade changes, substitutions, adviser approval letters and other necessary information, should be carefully reviewed for accuracy.

An Academic Advising Report can be accessed through MyNIU. It is each student’s responsibility to contact her or his adviser with any questions regarding discrepancies that appear on this report.

Students must have at least 90 total semester hours to apply for graduation, and a $29 graduation fee will be billed to the students’ accounts. Absolutely no late applications will be accepted.
