Turn in your graduation application as soon as possible to your academic advisor for late consideration.
Diploma mailing address changes must be made in writing to the Registrar's Office or by email to email@example.com. Diploma mailing address changes for undergraduates may also be submitted via the Undergraduate Graduation Checklist in the Student Records folder in MyUWF.
Diploma name changes must be made in writing to the Registrar's Office or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you determine that you will not be completing all degree requirements by the end of the semester in which you applied to graduate, or if you elect to postpone your graduation date for another reason (such as to take classes towards a second major), you should notify the Registrar’s Office in writing or by email to email@example.com to cancel your current semester graduation application. You will need to submit a new graduation application for the appropriate semester.
This information is available on the commencement website: http://uwf.edu/commencement/.
The GPA used to determine baccalaureate honors will be based upon all work attempted at UWF and previously attended institutions. However, the GPA used for honors will not be higher than the UWF GPA. A minimum of 40 semester hours of graded (A-WF) work must be completed at UWF. Please consult the Academic Catalog for further information. Honors indicated on the commencement program are tentative since current semester courses are not included. The cumulative GPA, including any transfer work, is recorded in the “University Credit Hour Requirements” section of your SASS audit.
The diploma will be mailed to the diploma mailing address submitted on your graduation application approximately six weeks after graduation.
The Registrar’s Office will begin awarding degrees approximately one week after grades are due. You may review your “Unofficial Transcript” in MyUWF to see if your degree has been posted. Once you have confirmed that your degree has been posted, you may order official transcripts at any time, which will reflect this information.
The “Degrees Awarded” and “Rank in Class” links will be updated approximately eight weeks after graduation.
Diplomas are mailed approximately 6 weeks after graduation. All financial holds, including Exit Counseling, must be cleared before the diploma will be released. Please review your record for any financial holds, and contact the Graduation Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org) to verify the diploma mailing address on file.
Once your Graduation Application has been received and processed by the Registrar’s Office, you will receive a confirmation e-mail to your student e-mail account (undergraduate students may also see the Undergraduate Graduation Checklist in the Student Records folder in MyUWF). Graduation Applications are processed approximately one month after the application due date.
There is not a fee for the graduation application.
