Congratulations on reaching the final stretch of your current academic program! We look forward to celebrating with you. Finish strong!

The graduation process begins when the student submits a graduation application. Carefully review the information on Applying for Graduation.

While we award degrees at the end of every semester, Elon holds only one commencement ceremony. Please see the commencement website for more information.
