Graduation and commencement

Graduation refers to the actual awarding of a degree once a student has successfully completed all graduation requirements. Upon completion, the degree will be noted on EOU records and will then display on EOU transcripts.

Commencement is a ceremony. It is an opportunity for students, families, friends, and the EOU community to celebrate their academic accomplishments. Please visit the commencement webpage at https://www.eou.edu/commencement/ for more information. You must file a graduation application with the Registrar’s Office in order to have your degree awarded.

Completing Your Graduation Application

Students apply for graduation through Mountie Hub

At the bottom of the ‘Student and Financial Aid’ menu in Mountie Hub you will see ‘Graduation Application

  • Undergraduate students must have senior standing, 136 earned credits
  • Students should file their graduation application three terms in advance of the intended graduation date (see chart below for dates)
  • If you have any questions or are uncertain of your degree, major, concentration, or minor please contact your advisor
  • The graduation application is for all degrees, both undergraduate and masters, as well as certificates

Once your application is received your degree audit will go through three review checks. It will first
be reviewed by your academic advisor, next discipline chair, and last the dean. Once your
graduation audit has been reviewed, you will be notified of all remaining degree requirements via
