Things To Do Before You Graduate

Congratulations on your upcoming graduation. Important details are provided below. Please read carefully.

  1. File for Graduation

    During the first week of your graduating semester, you must submit a Graduating Student Form for the university to certify your graduation.

    By completing this form at least eight weeks prior to graduation, you will receive your diploma at Commencement.

  2. Confirm Commencement Attendance

    Baylor assumes all graduates will walk in the commencement ceremony. If you are unable to attend, you must let the Registrar's Office know by completing the Non-participation Form.

    If you submit the Non-participation Form, your diploma will be mailed to you after the ceremony. This may take up to two weeks depending on the time of year.

  3. Confirm Hooding Ceremony Attendance and Provide Information.
  4. The Business School will host a Hooding Ceremony and reception to present you with your master's hood.
