Graduation

Ready to join the Boilermaker alumni family? Let’s take a few steps to prepare you for graduation:

Apply for graduation
To be eligible to receive a degree at the end of the current academic semester, you must apply for graduation by the deadline listed in myPurdue. You can find the link and deadlines in myPurdue. Go to the Academics tab and find the “Destination: Graduation” section. Find instructions on how to apply.
Confirm that you are ready to graduate
In order to graduate with a bachelor’s degree, you need to complete at least 120 credits and earn at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA. In addition, students need a GPA of a 2.0 or higher in their Krannert major related coursework.

Check with your academic advisor to confirm you are on track to graduate in the term you have applied to graduate. Your academic advisor can help you understand the requirements needed to graduate with your chosen major(s) and any minors, concentrations, and/or certificates.
