Awarding Degrees

 FAQs concerning Degrees

All degree requirements must be complete by the last day of the semester for which the graduation application is submitted.

Degrees are awarded at the end of each semester, upon completion of all departmental and university requirements. The Office of the Registrar will begin awarding degrees approximately one week after grades are due. Once your degree has been posted, your official transcript will reflect this information.

You may review your Unofficial Transcript via the Student Academic Records Menu app in MyUWF to see if your degree has posted.

Please see the Baccalaureate Honors portion of the Undergraduate Academic Catalog for specific information used to determine baccalaureate honors. Be aware, honors indicated on the commencement program are tentative since current semester courses are not included.

Once a degree has been awarded (i.e. posted to the academic transcript) no grade changes will be processed for a course which was taken and completed prior to graduation.

Students whose Graduation Application is denied for any reason or do not meet the requirements for graduation must submit a new application for the semester in which the requirements are met.

The diploma will be mailed to the DIPLOMA MAILING ADDRESS submitted on your graduation application approximately six weeks after graduation.

Diploma mailing address changes must be made in writing to the Office of the Registrar or by e-mail to graduation@uwf.edu

All financial holds, including Exit Interviews, must be cleared before the diploma will be released.
