Summer Degree Candidates

All schools at Emory University participate in online degree application submissions with the exception of Emory College. Emory College students must complete a paper degree application. Contact the Office of Undergraduate Education regarding the degree application process.

You may apply online to graduate through your OPUS account. Online degree applications will be available in OPUS one month prior to the deadline (see application deadlines below).

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.

An application received after the deadline for the term must be accompanied by a $25.00 late application fee and submitted to your school. If a late application is accepted by the Office of the Registrar, there is no guarantee the diploma will be available at commencement.
