The Charge

When an undergraduate student completes the Application for Undergraduate Graduation (link to the online app) and it is approved, a $25 Graduation Fee is assessed to the student’s University bill at either the beginning of the graduating semester or during the previous semester. It is intended that the fee get assessed to a student’s bill before the graduating semester but late applications can result in the timing of the fee’s assessment. It is a one-time fee and will not be charged when revisions are made to the graduating semester.

Once the fee is on your University bill, it can be paid online on e-services, in person at the Cashier’s Office or by mailing a check to the following address:

University Cashiers
128 Wigley Administration Center
Mankato, MN 56001

Please be sure to include the student’s tech ID number in the memo line of the check. Questions concerning this fee can be addressed with the Alumni Relations & Special Events Office. They are located in room 224 of the Alumni Foundation Center and their phone number is 507-389-1515.

Unpaid Graduation Fee

If the Graduation Fee is not paid, it will result in the diploma not being mailed.

Changed Graduation Term 

If you have changed your graduation term, the graduation fee will not be charged again.


If you are an undergraduate student and have questions about this fee, contact the Alumni Relations & Special Events Office.
