For students intending to graduate spring or summer 2023 applications are due by Wednesday, March 15. After this deadline, names may not be included in the commencement program and could delay the delivery of your diploma.

Students must complete a graduation application for degrees to be awarded and for students to be invited to the May commencement ceremony. Spring and summer graduates are invited to walk in the May ceremony, as there will not be a separate commencement ceremony in the summer.

Applications are available on the MyPennWest portal.

Go to, and click on the MyPennWest icon. Sign in and enter username and password. Click on student self-service then find the graduation application – listed underneath profile picture. Review Degree Works and meet with your advisor to ensure that all your program requirements have been met.
