Graduation Application

Application for graduation must be made in order to be considered for degree. Applications for graduation will not be accepted any earlier than one semester prior to the term you are expected to graduate. Submit this application form prior to the graduation calendar for deadlines established for the term/year you are applying for graduation.  Application deadlines:

Fall 2017: October 31, 2017

Expected graduates enrolled in the M.S. in Architecture, Ph.D. in Architecture, and/or Ph.D. in City Planning programs must also apply to graduate with Graduate Arts and Sciences: Graduate Arts and Sciences Graduation Application. All others need only complete the application below.

Diplomas are mailed to graduates at their permanent address on file, unless a temporary address with an effective date has been entered in the Penn Directory. August diplomas are mailed in October, December diplomas are mailed in March, and May diplomas are mailed in July.

The regulations of the School of Design specify that a student must satisfy and clear all degree requirements to be considered for graduation. Please refer to the graduation calendar for the deadlines to clear and/or reconcile incomplete/missing requirements. Students with missing requirements will not be allowed to participate in graduation ceremonies.

All students with an account balance of $200 or more will have a hold placed on their diploma and academic record. Students with a financial hold are still eligible to participate in graduation ceremonies.

Please notify the PennDesign Office of Student Services if you will not be graduating in the term applied for. If you withdraw your application you must reapply for graduation. This application will not roll over.
