Application for Awarding of Master's Degree, Doctoral Degree, or Graduate Certificate

Students must apply for graduation by the first Friday of the anticipated term of graduation; see the  Graduate Candidates Deadlines for specific dates.

The application for graduation is now submitted through Banweb. Log in, go to the Student Services tab, then Graduation Application and Diploma Orders. There is a required $30 application fee per degree/graduate certificate as well as a $2 service charge; you must pay with a Visa or MasterCard at the time you submit the application. If you are graduating from multiple degrees and/or graduate certificates in one term, you must apply for each one separately; the online system will allow you to do this as part of one order.

As a one-time courtesy, students who do not complete degree requirements can have their application for graduation carried forward to a future term (typically the next term, but it could be at maximum up to one year in advance). To request that an application for graduation be carried, students must contact OGS in writing and provide an explanation for the graduation delay. If students do not graduate a second time, the application for graduation will be dropped; they will then need to reapply for graduation by the appropriate deadline (and will be assessed a new fee).

If you are a Master's student, please see the Summary of Procedures for Master's Degrees for information about additional requirements for graduation.

If you are a Doctoral student, please see the Summary of Procedures for Doctoral Degrees for information about additional requirements for graduation.

If you have any questions about applying for graduation, please contact our office at 503-725-8410 or grad@pdx.edu, or visit us at XSB 184.
