Applying for Graduation

Georgia State graduate students must apply for graduation via PAWS at least two semesters prior to their expected graduation term.  The university holds Commencement ceremonies during both the Fall and Spring semesters, and summer graduates are allowed to attend the Spring Commencement by prior arrangement with the GSU Commencement Office.  The School of Public Health honors all public health graduates at a Convocation ceremony each spring.
