You've made it! Graduation is right around the corner; but before you march across the stage, you need to do a few things first.

  • Complete a Graduation Application
  • Check the Name on Your Diploma
    • May 15, 2022
    • You will have your diploma for the rest of your life. Make sure it's accurate. If you're having your name legally changed, complete the Request for Change of Name on Record Form with the Office of the Registrar.
  • Order Your Cap, Gown, Hood and Tassel
    • As a Temple graduate, you are required to wear your school/college's approved cap, gown, hood and tassel at Commencement and graduation.
