Petition to Graduate

Petition to Graduate

Planning to complete your degree requirements within the next academic year?  Then you must file a Petition to Graduate application by the published deadline!

Students who are completing their degree requirements by the end of a given term must submit a Petition to Graduate (PTG) application by the published deadline to have their degree conferred. You must file your PTG at the beginning of the preceding Spring term in order to have your degree conferred in Fall (December) or Winter (January), and at the beginning of the preceding Fall term in order to have your degree conferred in Spring (May) or Summer (August). The submission of the PTG is a graduation requirement and students must complete the process to have their HPU degree conferred. Failing to submit your PTG on-time will delay your degree conferral dateA PTG is required whether or not you intend to participate in the Graduation Ceremony. Please submit your PTG for the term in which you will complete all your courses and degree requirements, NOT the term you want to participate in the Graduation Ceremony.

The default Graduation Ceremony for all Spring (May) and Summer (August) graduates is the Spring (May) ceremony; the default graduation ceremony for all Fall (December) and Winter (January) graduates is the Fall (December) ceremony. Please click here for Graduation Ceremony information.

Example: You will complete all your classes and degree requirements for degree conferral at the end of the Fall term, but you wish to participate in the following Spring ceremony. You will want to submit your PTG for Fall (the term in which you will complete all your degree requirements) and let your Faculty Advisor know you wish to attend a diffferent ceremony other than December, or by emailing ptg@hpu.edu.

How to SUBMIT Your PTG

Complete your PTG online through the MyHPU Portal and clicking “My Student Profile." Click here for step-by-step instructions.

This step ensures that you receive vital information related to degree completion.  Please check your HPU email frequently for all degree conferral related communication.

Failure to meet PTG submission deadline will result in a late fee and/or non-conferral of your degree.

 

Step Two:  Meet with your Faculty Advisor.

Schedule a meeting with your Faculty Advisor to review and complete a Graduation Audit form together before the April 22nd deadline for Fall or Winter 2022 PTGs, or NOVEMBER 18 for Spring or Summer 2023 PTGs. This is a helpful final step to be certain that you meet all degree conferral requirements and are in the correct courses that will lead to an on-time degree completion. Your Faculty Advisor will then submit the Graduation Audit form to the Registrar's Office to begin review of your PTG.
