If you do not apply to graduate, you will NOT graduate.  The filed Graduation Application is used to inform the candidate's academic unit and advisement center that the Graduation Check is to be completed.  It is also the basis for listing candidates in the published Commencement program, for posting the completed degree and any associated Honors designation to the student's record and on the transcript, and for printing the diplomas.

Most students can and should apply to graduate online within SalukiNet "Self-Service".  After logging into SalukiNet, under the My Records tab, in the SIU Personal Records channel, click on the View My SIU Student Records link to launch SalukiNet "Self-Service."  Choose the Student menu and click on Apply for Graduation to get started.

To assist you in this graduation application process within SalukiNet, we have detailed instructions available at

If you are unable to apply online, you may instead use a paper application.
