Apply for Graduation

All students must apply for graduation through their SWORDS account two semesters before their last term.

Congratulations Graduates!

Graduation ceremonies for Fall will be held on Thursday, December 12th and Friday, December 13th at the Recreation and Wellness Center on the Macon campus.

Due to the high chances of rain on Thursday, Dec. 12, and Friday, Dec. 13, graduates who are participating in the University’s graduation ceremonies scheduled for both days are asked to check in on the second floor of the Recreation and Wellness Center. Do not report to the Student Life Center as was originally planned. Graduates will check in at the new location and line up there for the walk into the arena where all ceremonies  will be held.

This change is being made with your safety and comfort in mind. What will not change is how great and memorable your graduation day will be.

Again, don’t report to the Student Life Center. Report directly to the second floor of the Recreation and Wellness Center. We’ll see you there and be cheering you on!
