Clearance to Graduate
If you wish to participate in this ceremony, there are a few important steps you will
need to follow. Failure to meet the deadlines stated below will result in the postponement
of your graduation.
Step 1: Submit Online Application
Please follow the instructions that were sent to you by email. If you did not receive those instructions, contact your Program Office immediately. If you are unable to access the online graduation application, download the Intent to Graduate form, print it and fill it out completely using black or blue ink. Please print legibly as this form will become part of your permanent academic record. When you have completed the form, send it to the following address:
Office of Student Information and Services
24255 Pacific Coast Highway
Malibu, CA 90263-7999
Your Intent to Graduate form is due by March 13, 2020. The Intent to Graduate application is only valid for the term in which you applied.
If you are unable to complete your degree within that term, you will be required to
submit a new application.
Step 2: Ensure Your Academic Clearance
Consult the University catalog for the academic year that you began your program or visit with your program administrator to ensure that you have met all of the academic requirements for your particular program. All of the transfer courses that you wish to apply to your degree requirements must be submitted to your Program Office. If you are currently enrolled in courses that you plan to transfer toward your Pepperdine University degree program, please notify our office in writing.
