Welcome to NDSU's website dedicated to providing information on the graduation process.


Undergraduate Students

Graduation is the completion of all university, major and any minor academic requirements in a student’s final semester. Students report their expected term of graduation to the Degree Analysts in the Office of Registration and Records during their official degree audit. Students will apply through the Student Center in Campus Connection.
