Graduation Information

The crowning achievement to an academic career is, for most students, Commencement. CMU encourages all students eligible for graduation to take part in a Commencement ceremony.

Graduating students can find more detailed information about Commencement on myCMU under the graduation tab.

Graduating Senior Information

Students wishing to graduate must complete the Graduation Application found on myCMU. All graduates are required to pay a $75 graduation fee to the Business Office before graduation; this fee is required regardless of participation in a commencement ceremony.

Academic Regalia: All students planning to participate in a graduation ceremony should order their cap and gown online.

Announcements: Students interested in ordering announcements can do so through the Eagle Store.
