Applying for graduation
Every Franklin student must complete a graduation application to receive a diploma, even if you do not plan to participate in the commencement ceremony. The graduation application can be found through Self Service in your my.franklin.edu account. **Please note that if you fail to graduate in the trimester for which you apply, you must complete a new application for any subsequent trimester, including required fees.**
***If you are planning a move in the trimester of your graduation, please contact the Registrar's Office directly to confirm your mailing address.***
