Dominican holds one commencement ceremony each year.  We invite all prospective graduates to join the Dominican University community for the Spring Commencement Ceremony. 



Miss the Graduation Application Deadline?

The online graduation application is only available after the submission deadline per special request through the Office of the Registrar.  Request for a late application will incur a $25.00 late fee. 

Graduation applications are available for students to complete online in the time period between advanced registration and the start of the semester students intend to graduate.  This time frame allows students the ability to make any changes that may be necessary in the event there is a deficiency found during the audit. 

There is a $100 administrative graduation fee.

(administrative fees do not include costs associated with commencement ceremony)

Final payment of all fees (including administrative graduation fee) must be received to participate in the commencement ceremony, receive a copy of your diploma, or request transcripts

(Degrees are conferred regardless of financial obligation)

The graduation fee will be billed to your account in the fifth week of your final semester

Payment can be made by using either a credit card or electronic check through Cashnet.  Please contact the Student Accounts Office for payment questions.
