Student Handbook 2021-2022


Applying for Graduation

Students are required to apply for graduation for degree and certificate programs five months prior to their intended graduation date. Graduation application forms are available through the Walsh Student Portal. Once an Application for Graduation is submitted, a fee will be charged. A preliminary graduation audit will then be completed and notification of the status of the application will be sent to the student’s Walsh email account.

Graduation Applications may be carried over to a future semester but are only valid for a total of four consecutive semesters. If a Graduation Application has exceeded the four-semester limit, the student will be required to complete a new Application for Graduation and resubmit the graduation application fee.

A separate fee for the cap and gown is assessed for students who choose to participate in the Commencement ceremony.
