Application for Graduation

Congratulations on reaching your goal to earn a master’s degree in engineering from Johns Hopkins University. The online, part-time master’s degree through the Engineering for Professionals program offers the same level of excellence and reputation as the traditional on-campus master’s degree. As a working professional, we understand the additional sacrifices you’ve made to achieve this goal, and we applaud you for the time and effort you committed to complete the rigorous program.

This page provides you with the details you need to take the next steps to graduation.

How to Submit a Graduation Application

  1. Graduation applications are submitted online through SIS. Once you have logged into SIS, mouse over the registration column and click on Program of Study. Then click on Apply to Graduate.
  2. Pay the graduation fee of $100 upon receipt of an e-bill notification from the Student Accounts Office.
  3. Note that only graduates who complete degree requirements prior to the ceremony date will be allowed to participate in Commencement activities.

After Submitting an Application

Approximately two months after the semester begins, students who have submitted the application for graduation receive a preliminary letter stating that their names have been placed on the tentative graduation list for the semester in which they anticipate completing their degree requirements.

Commencement information is typically sent the first week of March. To receive your diploma, you must pay all student accounts in full and resolve all outstanding charges of misconduct and violations of academic integrity. In the spring, you will receive an e-bill notification to your JHU email account from Student Accounts. For graduation fees, see the Tuition and Fees page. Your diploma will be sent at the end of the term in which you graduate. Johns Hopkins University diplomas indicate the school (e.g., Whiting School of Engineering), degree, and major (e.g., Master of Science-Computer Science) without identifying your focus area/track or course modality (e.g., online).
