Apply to Graduate

All eligible degree candidates must complete the Graduation Application by the applicable deadline. Please read all Northeastern email correspondence in their entirety as they will communicate important information regarding this process and other related details.

Before you Apply to Graduate through your myNEU account, we recommend you take the time to review your current program information, i.e. degree, major, minor and concentration. To review this information log in to your myNEU account; under the Self-Service tab click Student Self-Service. From the Student Menu, click Student Records, then choose View Student Information; choose your term and click submit. Your expected graduation date and curriculum information will be noted on this page. Contact your academic dean's office representative if you have any questions or if any of the information is incorrect.

If, or when, the information is correct, the next step is to confirm your date of graduation and then Apply to Graduate. Under the Self-Service tab in your myNEU, you will find the Commencement box located at the bottom left corner of the screen. Choose the Apply to Graduate option and complete the application. If you receive an error message, your program information is incorrect, or you are applying after the deadline, please contact your academic advisor and do not complete the application until the issue is resolved.

The Apply to Graduate form is required and provides your college/school, the Office of the Registrar and the Commencement Office with the critical information needed to serve you. Failure to complete the application or late application will affect your access to ceremony guest tickets, printing of your diploma, participation in the ceremony, inclusion in the printed ceremony program, and other deadline driven components.
