Petition to Graduate

Planning to graduate this academic year?  Plan to file your Petition to Graduate (PTG) at least one term prior to your intended graduation. The completion of the PTG is a graduation requirement and students will not have their HPU degree conferred without the completion of this form. A PTG is required whether or not you intend on participating in the Commencement Ceremony.


Important Deadlines

Fall and Winter 2020: Friday, August 7th

Spring and Summer 2021: Friday, September 25th


How to Complete Your PTG

Step One:  The completion of either the online version or paper version of the PTG by the published deadline.

Complete your PTG online through the MyHPU Portal and clicking “My Student Profile. Click here for step-by-step instructions.




Complete a paper PTG using the form located here (Fall/Winter 2020).

This step ensures that you receive vital information related to degree completion and the commencement ceremony.  Please check your HPU email frequently for all graduation and degree conferral related communication.

Failure to meet PTG submission deadline will result in a late fee, may result in your name not appearing in the commencement program, and non-conferral of your degree.


Step Two:  Meet with your Advisor.

Schedule a meeting with your advisor to review your plan for graduation. If you are using the paper PTG form, you will submit the form to your advisor during this meeting.  This is a helpful final step to be certain that you meet all graduation requirements and are in the correct courses that will lead to an on-time degree completion.
