Degree Posting Timeline Degree Posting (8-10 weeks)

    All graduate students must apply for a graduation check prior to the beginning of his/her final semester. Specific deadlines are listed in the current Registration Guide and are also posted under the Important Dates and Deadlines page on the Graduate Studies website. Applying for a grad check is completed through the Student Center in Titan Online. A graduation processing and diploma fee of $115 will need to be paid at Student Financial Services (UH-180) with the application for graduation. For detailed instructions on how to apply for a grad check, click here.

    Posting of degrees begins on the last day of the semester and is completed within 8-10 weeks. During this time our Graduate Degree Evaluators will be checking each student's Advancement to Candidacy file to make sure they have completed all requirements for the degree.


  Once the degree has been posted, official transcripts can be ordered from the Admissions & Records Office. Forms are available at the Admissions and Records Information Counter (LH-114) or you may print out the request form online at:

Tip: It is recommended that students ordering official transcripts during the degree posting period request that transcripts not be mailed out until the degree has been posted.

Diplomas (4 months)

Diplomas, considered the ceremonial document, are mailed to students approximately 4 months after the last day of the semester.

Changes to Graduation Date:

Any change to your graduation date requires that you file a Request for Change of Graduation Date form. This form is available at the Graduate Studies Office (MH-112). A $10 fee will be charged for changing the graduation date.
