All degree-seeking students in all programs except Law (JD, LLM) and Medicine (MD) should apply for graduation via the online graduation application in GWeb. The Law School and MD students will continue to use the paper Application for Graduation.
Students must be registered for the semester or summer session immediately prior to the degree conferral date, and must complete all degree requirements by the last day of final examinations for that semester or summer session. Candidates for doctoral degrees may have earlier deadlines for completion of their degree requirements and should verify the submission date with their department.
