Graduation Applications

Marymount University confers degrees in May, August, and December, with one formal Commencement ceremony in May.

Application Information:

In order to graduate with a degree or earn a certificate from Marymount University, you must submit a graduation application via the online graduation application in Marynet by the deadline indicated online. (Certificate students do not participate in the Commencement ceremony.) Certificate students applying after the regular deadlines should complete a Graduation Application for Certificate Programs.  The application initiates a degree audit. Once the audit has been completed, students will be notified in writing if they have any unresolved academic/graduation problems or if they will not be eligible to graduate during the semester for which they have applied. The completion of a Graduation Application or participation at Commencement does not guarantee that you will graduate.

For August Graduates ONLY:
Graduate students (Master’s and Doctoral, with the exception of students in the doctoral programs below*), who need to take no more than two courses (up to 8 credits) during the upcoming summer semester to complete their degree requirements and undergraduate students who need to take no more than nine (9) credits during the upcoming summer to complete their degree requirements may also participate in the preceding Commencement ceremony if they meet both of the following conditions:

  1. They complete an application for graduation by the designated deadline (Close of business – November 17, 2021 for Summer 2022 applicants; November 17, 2022 for Summer 2023 applicants).
  2. The Office of the Registrar confirms that the student needs to complete their degree requirements in the summer semester immediately following Commencement.

No exceptions or exemptions to these two conditions will be made or given.

*Note: Students in the D.N.P., Ed.D., D.Sc., D.B.A., transitional O.T.D., or transitional D.P.T. program must have completed their dissertations before they may participate in a Commencement Ceremony.
