Apply to Graduate
The Office of the Registrar is responsible for reviewing and conferring degrees and for printing diplomas. All students must apply for graduation through Medaille360. Failure to do so by the published deadline (March 1, 2020) could result in a delay of diploma and/or graduation conferral date.
If you do not apply, we will not know you are ready to graduate and will not review your program or confer your degree.
Students applying for a certificate will follow the same process of applying for graduation as degree-seeking students. The fee for applying for a certificate is $10.
About the Commencement Ceremony
Medaille College's annual commencement ceremony is a time for celebration and recognition of accomplishment. It is held in May each year.
Students who graduated within the past year are eligible to participate. Also, students who are within six credits of degree completion and who have applied for August conferral are eligible to participate. Students must have an active graduation application to participate. All students who intend to participate in their graduation ceremony must wear the appropriate academic regalia.
Ticket orders may be placed by graduating students only through Eventbrite, which will be open for orders from April 17 - May 15. There will not be a charge for ordering guest tickets. Students who applied for graduation will receive an email invitation from Medaille College, allowing the applicant to order and print up to eight (8) tickets. Please note, this invitation will be sent to Medaille email accounts only.
Tickets are required for all guests attending the ceremony and will be scanned for verification, prior to entry at Kleinhans Music Hall. No admission ticket is required for graduates.
If you require extra tickets, please fill out the following form. Please note that extra ticket requests will be reviewed after May 1:

Diplomas are mailed, approximately four to six weeks after each conferral date, to the address indicated on each student's graduation application. If your address changes between the time you apply for graduation and when your degree is conferred, please contact the Office of the Registrar immediately, so your diploma is mailed to the right address.
Diplomas are mailed once all financial, academic and student affairs holds are resolved.
Should your diploma arrive damaged, please contact the Office of the Registrar immediately.
If you have lost your diploma, you may order a replacement. Medaille College does not issue "extra" diplomas; we only issue a replacement if your diploma is lost, damaged or stolen. Please use the diploma reorder form to request a replacement.
