Graduation and Completion

Ready to graduate? Congratulations!

General information about applying for graduation, regalia, ceremonies, and more can be found on the University's Commencement website.


1. Check Degree Progress Report (DPR)

Follow the instructions on the Degree Progress Report's homepage to generate a DPR for your field of study.

The Honors Requirements for Completion section under the UCRT tab on your DPR should show as complete with a green In Good Standing circle. (Or you should have a plan for finishing your final requirements.)

If a course or experience is missing, please email Mauricio Gomez Montoya, MauricioGomez@ku.edu immediately.

2. Apply for Degree in Honors

After confirming completion of Honors Requirements on your DPR, you will need to Apply for a Degree (AFD) in Honors. This is the same process as applying for a degree in your major. Link to AFD instructions: http://sis.ku.edu/apply-graduation.  Please note, this step must be completed prior to March 1 for May graduation.  Failure to do so will result in your name not being printed in the University Commencement program.  

3. Complete Honors Graduation Form

Lastly, you will want to fill out our brief Honors Graduation Form.
