Portland Graduation: Getting Started

Graduates will receive all graduation-related information electronically. No meetings are required. Please take the time to read the graduation information located on the website, as well as each of the "Everything You Need to Know About..." pages on the graduation home page.

Step One

Fill out your application to graduate in S.I.S.. 

Once you submit your application, the Registrar's Office will add your name to the list of graduates. You will then be included on all graduation-related emails, have your regalia and diploma ordered, and be charged the graduation fee (information below).

A preliminary graduation audit will be compiled to ensure that you've completed (or will complete) all of the requirements for your program. 

The Faculty and Board of Directors will then review all graduate names before issuing a diploma.


Graduation Fee

The graduation fee is charged to your student account as soon as your application to graduate is processed. The fee must be paid by April 1, as it is applied toward the costs of your diploma, graduation audit, banquet tickets, graduation audit, and much more. Even students who are graduating in absentia must pay the fee.
