Grad Fair Planned for April 17-18


The graduation fair is scheduled for 9 a.m.-3 p.m. April 17-18 in the Student Union Building Activities Room.

Every degree candidate must complete a graduation clearance form prior to graduating. The clearance form verifies that all the necessary requirements for graduation have been completed, including the portfolio, senior test and GSQ. If all the necessary requirements for graduation have been completed, the entire clearance form can be completed while attending the graduation fair. Students who do not attend the fair will be required to visit all necessary offices individually in order to get the required signatures.

The fair provides the following opportunities:
  • The completion of all clearance items in one spot
  • The purchase of cap, gown and tassel
  • Posed graduation photograph (cap and gown provided for picture; another picture will also be taken when the student walks across the stage at commencement)
  • The purchase of graduation merchandise (invitations, frames, etc.)
  • The opportunity to ask questions and get answers about graduation and the commencement ceremony
Things to do before the fair:
  • Pay the graduation fee. Payment can be made online via TruView or in person at the cashier’s window. If eligible for Latin Honors (at least a 3.50 cumulative grade point average), the fee will include an $8 charge for medallion.
  • Take care of any holds that have been placed on the account.
  • Submit the portfolio. See for assistance.
  • Complete the information under “Career Center.” (This is available in TruView under Student Tab/Getting Involved)
  • Complete the GSQ. The GSQ is available online at (Note that passwords containing <, >, and & will not work)
Students who do not attend the fair must stop by the Registrar’s Office, McClain Hall 104, to pick up a clearance form after April 18. The completed copy must be returned to the Registrar’s office by April 27.

The progress of the graduation form can be viewed on TruView under Student Tab/Student Data/Registration/Apply to Graduate/“Graduation Clearance Form.”
