Spring Degree Candidates
All schools at Emory University participate in online degree application and you can apply online through your OPUS account. Online degree applications will be available in OPUS one month prior to the deadline.
Be sure to check the degree information display carefully as you apply to ensure your diploma will be ordered correctly. If anything about your degree information does not agree with your degree intention, contact the Office of Undergraduate Education (undergraduates), or your school’s Enrollment Services Office (graduates) immediately prior to applying to graduate.
Please know eligibility to apply for graduation does not necessarily mean that you have met all graduation requirements for your degree program. All requirements as stated in the Student Handbook for the year you entered the degree program supersede your eligibility to apply for graduation. You should receive additional information regarding graduation from your school.
Spring 2016 Degree Application Deadline: February 5, 2016
Name Change Deadline: February 29, 2016
Graduation/End of Term Date: May 9, 2016
Once the deadline to apply has passed, the option to apply online will no longer be available in OPUS. After the deadline, late degree applications will need to be completed using the paper form available from your school or on the Office of the Registrar's website. An application received after the deadline for the term must be accompanied by a $25.00 late application fee and submitted to your school.
Student Name on Diploma
Emory University will print the student's official name on the diploma at the time of graduation. The full name will be used. The student's name is recorded as submitted at the time of application for admission. Variations of the student's official name of record will not be permitted on the diploma.
Students wishing an alternate name on their diploma were encouraged to submit an official name change form. The name change deadline is February 29, 2016. After the deadline, in order to receive a diploma with a different name, students will have to submit a diploma replacement request through our Online Ordering Service, along with the $50 replacement fee.
