Diplomas and Transcripts

Graduation Activities

Dunwoody students do not need to apply for graduation. A student's academic progress toward degree completion is monitored by their expected graduation date. 

Graduating Dunwoody students are asked to complete a graduation survey and are invited to Countdown to Commencement on campus to prepare for graduation. Dunwoody also celebrates our graduates at our Graduate Reception where you can invite your family and friends to campus.

Dunwoody's Commencement Ceremony occurs following the spring semester. Graduate participation in commencement is encouraged, but not required. Participating in Commencement is not an indication of official graduate status. Information regarding Dunwoody's annual commencement ceremony is posted on the Commencement webpage.
