Graduation Application and Ceremonies

All degree candidates are required to file a formal application for graduation at the beginning of the semester before you plan to graduate.

To be eligible for graduation, you must meet the program grade point average requirements, as well as meet the course and credit requirements specified for the selected curriculum, and the University's general education requirements. Contact the Dean's office of your program for application instructions or your regional center to learn more.

Ceremony Choices

Students admitted to one of Ferris' off-campus locations or an online program who wish to participate in the Big Rapids ceremony will attend with their affiliated college. For example, a student graduating with a criminal justice degree will graduate with the College of Education and Human Services; a student graduating with a business administration degree will graduate with the College of Business.

Graduates from Dowagiac, Flint, and Traverse City have the choice of attending their local ceremony (if offered), traveling to the main campus, or both. Please contact your location's Commencement Coordinator to let them know the location you plan to walk.
