Prospective curriculum graduates must submit the Application for Graduation form. The form can be submitted electronically through the student’s Self Service account (Application for Graduation under the Academic Planning Section) or can be submitted at the Student Success Office located on the first floor of the Gee Building. This form must be submitted in order to graduate; graduation is not an automatic process.

Take the completed form to the Registrar's Office and pay the appropriate fee at the Cashier’s Office, located in the S Building (Student Services Building).

  • Where: Elon University-Koury Athletic Center- 104 E. Haggard Ave.


Each graduate will receive four (4) tickets - bring your supporters to cheer you on!

If you need more than four tickets, a "best practice" is to speak with fellow graduates and arrange to use tickets they may not need. 

While not guaranteed, an extra ticket may be obtained at the June 13 rehearsal, if a surplus exists.

Diplomas will be mailed approximately one week after graduation requirements are completed as long as the graduation fee has been paid.

 The Registrar's Office may have a limited surplus of caps and gowns. Once you have paid your graduation fee, you may check surplus availability in the Registrar’s office after May 6. Please be aware that your correct size may not be guaranteed in this circumstance.
