How do I apply to graduate?

  • Log into your myMemphis account
  • Click on the My Degree tab
  • Follow steps 1-4 in the Commencement and Graduation box on the left

I was unable to apply. What do I do now?

Please contact the Graduation Analyst Mark E. Alpuente at malpuent@memphis.edu

What steps do I take if I want to participate in the Commencement ceremony?

Completing Step 3 gives the Commencement Office your diploma mailing address and your cap and gown measurements.  Six weeks before the Commencement ceremony, you will receive an email from the Commencement Office informing you that Step 4 is now active.  You must complete Step 4 in order to participate in the Commencement ceremony.  If you do not plan on attending the ceremony, you still must complete Step 4.

The Commencement Office will send you an email when the Graduation program is ready for review.  Please make sure that your name is spelled correctly.  If there is an error, please contact the Graduation Analyst.

Pay Any Outstanding Fees!!! If you have any outstanding financial obligations to the University, you will not receive your Diploma, and you will not be able to request transcripts

How do I receive a permit to register for MGMT 4710?

Once you have applied to graduate, the Graduation Analyst will check to see if you are eligible for graduation.  If you are eligible, you will be issued a permit for MGMT 4710 before the first day you can register.

What information will be on my Diploma?

Your Diploma will show the name you have on file with the Registrar’s Office and that you have earned a Bachelor of Business Administration.  Neither your major(s) nor minor(s) are listed on the Diploma.  If you have earned Graduation Distinction based upon your GAP (summa cum laude, magna cum laude, or cum laude), the distinction will show on your Diploma.  If you have completed the requirements for University Honors or Honors in Business, that distinction will also be shown on the Diploma.

I applied for graduation for a previous semester but did not complete my degree requirements at that time. Do I have to apply again?

You only apply for Graduation one time.  If you did not complete your degree requirements, please email the Graduation Analyst.  The Graduation Analyst will change your Graduation semester for you.
