Graduation Application and Graduation Fee

To be eligible to participate in commencement you must first apply to graduate and be preliminarily cleared by the Office of the Registrar. Each graduation candidate who applies on time (before posted deadline*) is charged a $25.00 non-refundable graduation fee when they apply. This fee is separate from any of the optional fees that may be incurred for commencement participation (e.g., flowers, announcements, etc.) and is charged regardless of your commencement plans.

For more information, please visit our web pages:

Commencement eligibility note: Persons who graduated summer 2013 and fall 2013 who have not already participated in a prior ceremony, as well as those who have applied to graduate  and have been preliminarily cleared for spring 2014 graduation, will be eligible for the May 2014 ceremony.  Graduates and graduation candidates do not need to inform us of their intention to participate.  See Commencement Ceremony Eligibility for additional information.

*Apply online via MyCharleston Banner Self-Service. Deadlines for on-line application are: Oct. 1st for fall and Feb. 1st for spring. Graduation fee for late applicants is $50 and includes a $25 late fee. Contact graduation@cofc.edu if assistance is needed.
