Getting Through & Getting Out: How to Graduate On Time


Our Graduate School Advisors are part of an entire team to support graduate students in ensuring that you have met your degree requirements at Auburn University. We work in conjunction with your faculty advisor and the Graduate Program Officer – or GPO – from your department to help you make it through your graduate journey, hopefully in an efficient and timely manner.

The videos below explain the matriculation process – the “getting through” part – for graduate students at Auburn University. After watching the videos, we encourage you to contact your Graduate School Advisor if you have specific questions or need assistance.


After applying for graduation – which is the “getting out” part, be sure to read the information on commencement and graduation ceremonies.
