Graduation Requirements

Fall 2020 Graduation

All schools at Emory University participate in online graduation application submissions. Students may apply to graduate through their OPUS accounts online. The deadline for Fall 2020 Graduation is September 11, 2020. If you are not able to access the application via OPUS, you may fill out the paper form and submit via the Service Request Form.

After September 11, 2020, late degree applications must be completed using the paper form available here. Form should be completed, scanned and submitted to the Law Registrar office via this link: Service Request Form.

Dual degree students need to complete a paper form for each of the degrees they are completing.

Based on current health and University guidelines, Emory Law is tentatively planning a virtual celebration on December 14, 2020 to honor those students completing their degrees at the end of the fall 2020 semester. More details will be forthcoming.
