Graduation

Do I still need to apply for graduation?

For questions regarding the Spring application for graduates email Prescott Graduation.  

If I cannot personally attend my commencement ceremony, do I get a refund for the graduation fee paid? 

No. The graduation fee is not used to pay for ceremony expenses, rather it covers staffing, diploma costs, as well as processing and mailing fees. This fee is charged to all graduates, whether they choose to attend a ceremony or not, and so it remains in place for all graduates.

Will I receive a refund for regalia and announcements ordered since the Prescott May 2 ceremony is not occurring?

The vendor, Herff Jones, has posted a FAQ webpage at www.herffjones.com/collegereturns to offer options. 

Please continue to check the Prescott Graduation website for updates as information becomes available for the October 2 Commencement.

Is the Prescott May 2 commencement cancelled?

The Spring 2020 commencement ceremony for the Prescott campus has been postponed to October 2, 2020. Graduates may also attend the commencement ceremony on December 12, 2020. 

For Prescott Spring 2020 graduates who cannot attend the rescheduled Commencement date in October or December, but wish to attend a WW Ceremony, they must still apply to graduate with the Prescott Office of the Registrar, and only contact WW if they plan to attend a ceremony other than the rescheduled graduation in Prescott in October or December. 

Updates regarding participation will be posted to the Prescott Graduation website as details are finalized.

How do I notify you of the ceremony I wish to attend?

If you plan to attend either the October 2 or December 12 commencement ceremony in Prescott, please notify Lori Kennedy, Assistant Director of Graduation at lori.kennedy@erau.edu.

For further information on Worldwide Campus Commencements, email wwgrad@erau.edu.

How do I receive my diploma?

Your diploma will be mailed to you utilizing the address that you provided on the Graduation Application. 

We are expecting to mail diplomas 6-8 weeks after the May 2 conferral date, pending any COVID-19 complications.  The transcript is the official record of degree completion.  Official transcripts may be requested online.  You may also request a Letter of Degree Completion on the Office of the Registrar Forms Page.
