Instructions for Submitting Application for Graduation on URSA

The graduation application process is an online function available through MyIUP. Undergraduate students (including associate degree and dual baccalaureate degree* students) are required to apply for graduation in their next to final semester of enrollment by the established deadlines:

  • August Graduates: Deadline to Apply Online:  April 1
  • December Graduates: Deadline to Apply Online:  April 1
  • May Graduates: Deadline to Apply Online:  November 15

*Students seeking a dual baccalaureate degree must file a separate graduation paper application for each degree and, as a result, must apply for graduation through both associate dean’s offices of each applicable college.

General requirements for the School of Graduate Studies and Research are set forth in the Graduate Catalog.

  1. Sign into MyIUP using your IUP network account
  2. Click the Academics link
  3. In the Academic Record section, click Apply for Graduation/Undergraduate
  4. Your IUP official academic record will display. This contains your name, IUP ID number, program of study, and your major(s) and minor(s). It is important that you check this information carefully. If a program of study, major, or minor is incorrect, your graduation checkout will be affected. If you want to add or change a major or minor, you must contact your assistant dean or your advisor.
  5. You must select a graduation date. Please note that the online graduation application can only be used until the graduation application deadline. After the deadline date, the online program is not active. If you are applying after the deadline date, you must go in person to your college associate dean’s office and petition for permission to graduate.
  6. Place the cursor into the box for your name. Your diploma will bear your full legal name in accordance with the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education Board of Governors’ Policy. Your diploma name will be the same as your transcript name in MyIUP. (Exception: If you would like your middle name in place of your middle initial on your diploma, please indicate in the space provided.) If you would like to make an official name change, please complete and submit a Name Change/Correction form (including legal documentation of your name change) along with a Changes to the Graduation Application form. This paperwork must be submitted one month prior to the end of term in which you are graduating.
  7. Place the cursor into the address box and type in the address to where you want your diploma sent after you are cleared for graduation. Please note that whatever address you enter here has no impact on the address(es) IUP currently has on record for you. This diploma mailing address does not update any address you have with the university. This is strictly for mailing your diploma.
  8. Please double-check all the information you have entered. If you are satisfied it is correct, click on the gray “Submit” button.
  9. The information you have entered will display. Any time you come back to check the “Apply for Graduation” page, the information you have entered will display. You cannot update this information online. If you have any corrections after you have submitted your information, you must contact the Registrar’s Office in Clark Hall.
  10. Please go to the link containing information regarding graduation for the date for which you are planning to graduate. You should refer to this graduation information and be watchful for other information to be mailed to you.
