Important Dates for Fall 2022 Graduation

Online Intent to Graduate Form

When the online intent to graduate form is completed, an automatic email is sent to your campus email account, notifying you of the receipt and directing you to the Graduation Tracker. If you HAVE NOT filled out the intent form, please do so IMMEDIATELY, as you will not be included in any reporting if not coded. Intent forms submitted late may result in the graduate’s name not appearing in the Commencement Program. In addition, the diploma and final transcript will also be delayed. 

See more information on the online intent to graduate form >>

If you are having difficulty submitting the intent form, please contact the Office of the Registrar at (870) 972-2031 or by email at graduation@astate.edu.

Any student that files an online intent to graduate form but DOES NOT graduate during that same semester will be required to pay the graduation fee when filing the application again.

Starting fall 2022, we have two conferral dates Oct 7th 2022 and December 17th 2022.

Graduation Fee

This 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, the Diploma and cover, as well as the attire. 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.

  • Associates - $45.00
  • Bachelors - $60.00
  • Masters - $85.00
