Graduation Exit Process


Please read the following instructions:

ALL graduates must complete the Graduation Exit Process regardless of their participation in the ceremony. Regalia will only be distributed at Grad Finale to graduates who have completed the Graduation Exit Process.

Important tips to complete the Exit Process (Read before you begin):

  • Completing the Exit Process - After you log in, you will see boxes representing each step in the exit process. After you finish each step, you MUST click the little box that indicates you have completed that survey/interview/etc. You will see a green check mark above each box you have completed. Once all steps are complete and have a green check mark, you will receive an e-mail confirmation. You may start and stop the Exit Process at any time and it will save the work you have done. 
  • Error Message at Login - If you get an error message that says "You must be a graduating student to access the exit process", and you have already been approved to graduate, please attempt the following steps:
