Welcome to Arkansas State University!


Graduation Fee

This $45 fee is required of ALL students when filing an intent to graduate, even if not participating in the ceremony. The fee covers the processing of the paperwork, the printing of the Commencement Program and the Diploma and cover. This fee will be processed once the online intent form is completed. 

If a student is unable to graduate at the end of the semester for which the intent to graduate application has been made, the student will not receive a refund of the graduation fee and will be required to pay the fee on each subsequent intent to graduate application.
