There are tutorials available to assist with DegreeWorks if you need them. Please talk to your academic advisor often to keep track of your path to graduation.

Q: What are the graduation application deadlines?
A: You can find all graduation deadlines on the Graduation Office homepage or by consulting the Academic Calendar.

Q: What happens if I miss the final application deadline?
A: Late applications will be processed the following semester, even if you have completed all program requirements, and your diploma will be mailed ten weeks after that semester. We are unable to award credentials for past semesters. Your credentials and diploma will be dated according to the semester in which your graduation application is processed.

Q: How will I know the status of my application?
A: A confirmation message will be sent to your BruinMail account within five business days.

Q: What should I do if I've completed more than one program?
A: Complete and submit a separate application for each program.

Q: What happened to the Letter of Completion?
A: The Letter of Completion has been replaced by the Certificate of Completion in General Education. Like the Letter of Completion, this certificate verifies completion of general education requirements, and has the added benefit of being part of your permanent academic record. The application for the Certificate of Completion in General Education is available on our Forms page.
