Fall 2017 Graduation Checklist
Step 1

Meet the Degree Requirements

Verify completion of all degree requirements with your adviser and college dean's office.

Clear your academic record and have any incomplete grades converted to satisfactory grades before graduation.

Step 2

Apply to Graduate

Degree candidates must complete an online degree application on the student self service site by the deadline to graduate. Under the My Record link on left side of webpage, select degree application. By completing the degree application, degree candidates are applying for graduation.



Step 3

Have Finances In Order

Satisfy all financial obligations (fines, tickets, fees, etc.) with the University Bursar in 113 Criser Hall.

Certain loans require students to complete an online exit interview. For more details about the different types of loans and to see if you need to complete an online exit interview, refer to the University Bursar.



Step 4

Prep For Your Diploma

Your diploma will be mailed to your permanent home address up to eight weeks after graduation. By commencement weekend, verify your name and permanent address on your degree application. Watch your UF email address for shipping and CeDiploma notifications.



Step 5

Complete the Required Graduation Survey

All graduating students must complete the graduation survey the week before commencement. Graduating students cannot receive transcripts or a diploma without completion of the survey.



Should your plans change and you no longer will graduate in the term you applied, notify the Office of the University Registrar and your college dean's office immediately. Graduation applications do not carry forward, so you must reapply for the degree in the term you plan to graduate.
