Instructions for Prospective Graduates

Students should file for graduation at least one semester prior to the semester they intend to graduate. Students may file up to a year before their anticipated graduation date. Joint degree students should file for graduation with Truett upon completing their seminary courses even if they have not completed their secondary degree, stating their anticipated graduation date.

Why File for Graduation?

Filing for graduation informs Academic Services and the Baylor Registrar of your intent to graduate. Filing allows our office to monitor your academic progress in your last year, ensuring that you are taking the correct classes to complete your degree. It also gives you preferential consideration in case you are waitlisted for a class that you need to graduate. In addition, filing for graduation on time allows Academic Services adequate time to order diplomas for our graduating class.

Students graduating at any term between now and December 2023 may file for graduation.
