PARTICIPATION IN THE COMMENCEMENT CEREMONY IS NOT A GUARANTEE OF GRADUATION
DEGREES WILL BE AWARDED UPON COMPLETION OF ALL DEPARTMENTAL AND UNIVERSITY REQUIREMENTS
|Within Two Weeks of Application Deadline||
Contact your academic advisor to submit your graduation application and review your requirements for graduation.
Note: Due to the large volume of applications submitted, graduation applications received by the Registrar's Office are processed approximately one month after the submission deadline. Once your application has been processed, you will receive a confirmation e-mail to your student e-mail account (undergraduate students may also see the Undergraduate Graduation Checklist in MyUWF).
Final date for Registrar's Office to receive any change of information to appear in the Summer/Fall Commencement Program. Data is based on Graduation Application information. Undergraduates may review their graduation checklist in the Student Records folder in MyUWF. Privacy holds may affect information listed in the program.
Last day of semester. All requirements for graduation must be completed by this date.
Fall grades due to Registrar's Office for UWF courses. The Registrar's Office will begin awarding degrees approximately one week after grades are due. You may check your "Unofficial Transcript" in MyUWF (LightHouse if MyUWF is no longer active) to see if your degree has been posted.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.
Note: The "Degrees Awarded" and "Rank in Class" links will be updated approximately eight weeks after graduation.
Deadline for receipt of official test scores, transcripts, and grade changes to meet graduation requirements*. Please contact your major department to verify receipt, posting, and evaluation by this deadline.
|Approximately Six Weeks After Graduation||
Diploma mailed to the diploma mailing address submitted on your graduation application. All holds, including Financial Aid exit interviews, must be cleared before diplomas are mailed.
*Students for whom a degree has been awarded (i.e. posted to the academic transcript) may not have a grade changed for a course which was taken and completed prior to graduation.
Changes to the diploma mailing address are not made by simply changing your Current or Permanent address. This is an issue that must be addressed in writing to the Registrar's Office or by e-mail to email@example.com. Undergraduates may change their diploma mailing address through the "Undergraduate Graduation Checklist" in MyUWF.
Undergraduate Graduation Honors:
The GPA used to determine 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.
Your name will not appear in the Commencement Program or media release if you have placed a restriction on your name through the “Request to Prevent Disclosure of Directory Information.” You may update this information via the “Privacy Information” link in the Personal Information folder in MyUWF.
