STEP 3: GRAD FEE Visit the Student Portal and click "Pay Grad Fee" to pay your graduation fee of $250 ($25 if not walking in the ceremony). This will complete STEP 3. If this step happens after the deadline, you will be charged a $75 late fee.

***Steps 1-3 must be complete prior to your Step 4 appointment. 

STEP 4: FINALIZE WITH REGISTRAR –  The Registrar's Office will be notified when you pay your grad fee and will email the final contract to your TMU email in the next the few days. This email will include a review of the contents of the contract, and will ask you to sign and return the contract. After you return the signed contract, the Registrar's Office will also sign, completing the process. This will complete STEP 4.

*Note: the deadline helps to confirm that you are registered for the correct classes prior to your final semester starting.
