Request to Participate in Commencement Early/Late Form

Students who are on schedule to be candidates for graduation or who have already graduated may request to participate in commencement exercises for a term other than their actual graduation term. In order to be considered to walk either early or late, students must submit the form below which will be routed to their Dean’s Office for approval.

The submission of this form does not certify a student as a candidate for graduation. Students must complete the online Graduation Application for their actual graduation term.

This form may be completed by students attending any USC Campus with the exception of USC Aiken. Students attending USC Aiken should contact the records office on their campus instead of completing this form.
