Information for Graduating Students

Graduating students are required to submit two pieces of information, the GS2 Plan of Study and the Graduation Application, to the Graduate School at the beginning of the semester prior to their expected date of graduation (for example, August graduates must submit their GS2 mid-May, and the Graduation Application by early June).

Graduation Celebration

All graduating students and their families are invited to our semi-annual Graduation Celebrations, which take place in May, August and December, no cap & gown required. Students will receive recognition and a special gift from the MBA Program and the College of Business.


All graduating students are invited to walk in the official University Graduation but are not required to do so. Students will indicate their choice on the Graduation Application. Once all forms are submitted and approved, caps and gowns can be ordered through the Clemson University Bookstore
