Petition to Graduate

Petition to Graduate

Planning to graduate within the next academic year?  You must file your Petition to Graduate (PTG) at least one term prior to your intended graduation date. The completion of the PTG is a graduation requirement and students must complete the form to have their HPU degree conferred. A PTG is required whether or not you intend to participate in the Commencement Ceremony.


Important Information and Deadlines

                                              **PTG submitted after September 10th will incur a $25 late fee**

                                               Last day to submit a late PTG for Spring or Summer 2022 Degree Conferral is Friday, October 1st


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.

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 and complete a gradatuation audit form together. 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. Your advisor will then forward the graduation audit form to the Registrar's Office to begin review of your PTG.
