Southern Utah University holds a Commencement Ceremony once each academic year and posts degrees at the end of each academic semester. Students must apply for graduation before the above deadlines to be considered for graduation and for participation in Commencement.

Students who have 12 or fewer credits remaining in their program and intending to complete those credits during the Summer semester may participate in Spring Commencement, but must apply for graduation by the February 15th application deadline.
Students completing their program of study during the Summer who apply after the February 15th deadline will be included in Commencement exercises the following year.
