Applying for Graduation

Students who are ready to graduate must complete and submit an Application for Degree. Eligible students who fail to apply for graduation by the deadline, or who apply late, may have their degree awarded at the next conferral date.

Students should complete the graduation application by the required deadline. The application is available at the Main Office or by clicking the form button on this page. Applications for graduation must be signed in black/blue ink by the student. All students should meet with their academic advisor to make sure that they have met all of the academic requirements for their degree; however, it is the student's responsibility for degree completion. Undergraduate students completing the online application are required to submit the application to their advisor for approval.

If students fail to meet all academic requirements for graduation, they are responsible for submitting a new Application for Degree for the next anticipated date of graduation.

Please note: the Application for Degree can be filled out online, but must be printed out, signed, and submitted to the Office of the Registrar. The form can be hand-delivered to the LIU Post Office of the Registrar in Kumble Hall; faxed to 516-299-2330; or mailed to: Office of the Registrar, LIU Post, 720 Northern Boulevard, Brookville, NY 11548. The application may also be submitted to the Main Office at LIU Brentwood. The application cannot be e-mailed.
