Step 1 - Eligible students must complete an application to graduate. Log in to Self-Service Banner (SSB) at my.bsu.edu and click on the "Student" tab, then click on "Student Records," then "Apply to Graduate."
Step 2 - Participants will need to order the necessary materials such as the cap, gown, and tassel. We ask that you get all your materials early in case something needs to be returned or exchanged.
