Preparing for Graduation

If you are two semesters from completing your program, then it’s time to start preparing for graduation. Follow the steps below to ensure you are ready.

Submit your graduation application.

Submitting a graduation application alerts the Registrar that you are nearing the completion of your program, and triggers the processes that lead to the conferral of your degree. You can download a copy of the graduation application on the Registrar’s website. We recommend you return it directly to your advisor.

If you plan to attend Commencement, order and pick up your cap and gown.

The Registrar will send out information regarding Commencement to your Mercer email. You can also find information about Commencement on the Registrar’s Graduation website.

Review your degree audit.

Shortly after you submit your graduation application, the Registrar will send you a copy of your degree audit. The audit is completed by your academic advisor, and will list any remaining requirements necessary to complete your degree. If you have questions about the audit, schedule an appointment with your advisor to discuss where you stand:

Schedule an appointment with Donna Terrill >
Schedule an appointment with Jamie Lineberry>

Complete your exit examination.

All undergraduate Stetson-Hatcher School of Business students are required to complete an Exit Assessment Examination. You can schedule this exam with our undergraduate advisor.
