Step 1: Create a Graduation Plan in UMdegree.

  • This plan will help you outline the remaining courses that you have left to take.
    However, do not confuse this plan with the one Financial Aid requires. Check with the Financial Aid Office (if necessary) about their process.

Step 2: Complete the Graduation Notification Form.

  • You will complete this ELECTRONIC form after you finish your graduation plan.
  • It automatically notifies your advisor once you submit it.
  • Link to the Graduation Notification Form can be found here.
  • The form also serves as your permit request for your Senior Project UNIV-4995.

Step 3: Apply to Graduate with the Commencement Office

  • Once your advisor reviews your graduation plan, you will receive instructions on when you should complete your application with the Commencement Office.

Step 4: Graduation Agreement Packet.

  • This online packet will be sent you, via email, from our Graduation Analyst, Jackie Cole.
  • Once you complete this packet she will receive the results automatically, and this is the final step in the University College graduation process.


Other graduation information can be found at the Commencement Office website. 


 Important note for students designing a degree program:

  • A completed baccalaureate contract must have the approval signature from the Assistant Dean of the college to be eligible to start the graduation application process.  The approval process generally takes about eight (8) weeks to be completed.
