Instructions for Applying for Graduation Instructions for Applying for Graduation


When you finish your coursework, you will need to apply for graduation to get your degree. When you apply for graduation, you have the option to participate in the commencement ceremonies.

If you are going graduate and do not want to participate in commencement, be sure to indicate that on your graduation application (check "no" for the question "Do you plan to participate Commencement?")

In order to walk in our commencement ceremony, you must apply for graduation during the last semester you're taking courses at ENMU. Please note: there is no summer Commencement.
