Are You on Track to Graduate?
You must complete all degree requirements prior to your graduation date. Have you checked your degree audit? If not, log on to your AP OneStop account and go the Degree Works tile. Review your audit to see if you are missing any requirements. For instructions on how to read your audit, see our Degree Works page.
If you are missing anything, or if you need substitutions or waivers, please contact your advisor.
If you have completed or will complete all degree requirements in the current term, you are ready to apply for graduation. Go to our Apply to Graduate page for instructions on how to apply for graduation.
If you anticipate completing any course(s) at another institution, the course(s) must be specified on a Course Work Approval Form filed with the Office of the Registrar. It must include the selected course(s), dates of enrollment, institution, advisor/department chair approval and Office of the Registrar approval. An OFFICIAL transcript must be received from the institution immediately upon completion of the course(s).
If you are seeking a bachelor's degree in any program, you are required to take the Senior Exit Exam. For more information, go to the Senior Exit Exam page, or contact the Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Assessment at firstname.lastname@example.org or 931-221-6184.
If you are seeking a bachelor's degree, you may also be required to take a major field test. If you are unsure if your program requires you to take a major field test, please contact your advisor or department for more information.
If so, please log into your AP OneStop account to pay your bill. An outstanding balance will not prevent you from graduating. However, it will prevent you from picking up your diploma or receiving official transcripts.
Once you apply for graduation, you will begin receiving emails about 3 months prior to commencement regarding your graduation status, ordering your cap and gown, and general commencement information.
We will send you an email to your official APSU email with a link to order your cap and gown. Our cap and gown vendor, Herff Jones, also offers announcements, invitations, diploma frames, and other products to meet your graduation needs.
General Graduation Requirements
If you know you are not going to complete all degree requirements by your intended graduation date, or if your degree was cancelled, please email email@example.com to move your application to a subsequent semester.
