Graduate & Professional Studies students pay a $50 graduation fee.  This fee is charged to cover the cost of cap and gown and graduation activities.  The fee is levied prior to graduation regardless if you attend the ceremony or not.  The fee is waived only upon completion of the online assessment survey.  An email invitation asking you to complete the survey is sent to you approximately a month and a half prior to your completion date.

On Friday, May 8th, Doane Grand Island campus will host a graduation celebration in your honor in the College Park Foyer. The evening begins with appetizers at 5:00 followed by recognition and awards.

Caps and gowns are distributed at the end of the graduation celebration. If you are unable to attend the celebration, you will be able to pick up your cap and gown at the Grand Island Campus.
