Each candidate for a degree to be conferred must file a formal application for the degree with the Registrar. Degrees are awarded at commencement ceremonies. Certificates will be sent to the graduate by certified mail. Certificate-seeking students do not need to make formal application, however, should notify the University College Dean's office one semester prior to graduation.
There are two things you need to do before you graduate from Creighton:
- Two semesters prior to your planned graduation date, schedule a "Senior Check" with the Assistant Dean of University College to insure that you are on track with your degree plan. Call our office, 280.2424, to set up an appointment.
- You will also need to Apply for Graduation by the specified deadlines. All Creighton University degree-seeking students are required to attend Commencement Ceremonies.
The Public Relations Commencement site is filled with valuable information about Graduation.
