You must apply to graduate
IU Bloomington does not automatically award degrees once requirements are completed; you need to declare your intention by completing a graduation application.
Graduation Application Due Date
If you are graduating in December 2021, you should complete your graduation application by May 1st, 2021. The graduation application will become available at the beginning of April. Applying for graduation by the due date ensures that you’ll receive correspondence regarding the IU Commencement Ceremony, and that your name will be printed in the commencement program. Make sure that your address is correct in One.IU, so that you receive your commencement information and diploma.

The Indiana University Commencement Ceremony is held twice a year—in May for May and July graduates, and in December for December graduates. All aspects of the ceremony are coordinated through the Office of University Events and Commencement Services including times, parking, cap and gown rental, and directions for students and parents.

O'Neill Recognition Ceremony
We host our own annual Recognition Ceremony at the end o each semester. Students graduating in December are eligible to participate in the winter recognition ceremony and any student graduating in May or July of the academic year is welcome to participate in the spring recognition ceremony. Our ceremonies include O'Neill speakers and the recognition of each student.
Recognition Ceremony for Students Graduating in May
In May 2021, the O'Neill Recognition Ceremony will be held virtually on Friday, May 7th at 7:00 p.m. Students graduating in May or July of 2021 are encouraged to submit their photo for the virtual recognition. O'Neill School leadership will celebrate student success in a live session that will individually recognize each graduating student.
For questions, please contact the Undergraduate Programs Office, email@example.com, 812-855-0635.
Changing your Graduation Date
What if you intend to graduate in May, apply for May graduation, and find that you need to take a summer course after all? Or you've planned an extra semester, but decide to finish early? Not to worry—simply contact the O'Neill advising office to submit a change of graduation date form—do not reapply for graduation. But, do note that we don’t automatically roll your graduation date over to the next date if you do not graduate as planned. You must apply for a change in your graduation date if you intend to graduate later than anticipated.
