Final steps before you graduate


Apply for your degree

In order to formally graduate (i.e., earn your degree), students must apply for their degree. You may do this two quarters in advance. To submit a request to file for graduation, please see your advisor.

Not sure if you’ve applied? You can verify the quarter you have applied to graduate by running a degree audit (DARS). If you have successfully filed, your anticipated quarter will show prominently on the top right corner.


File a spring MS degree request or schedule a spring PhD final exam in MyGrad by May 24

Complete MyGrad tasks, which makes you eligible to register for Commencement.

    • You will soon lose access to your UW email inbox and UW file storage/drives. Set up email forwarding on your UW account so that you will continue to receive messages sent to your UW email address, and migrate all personal files off of UW servers (U Drive, Google Drive, etc.).
  • Double-check in MyUW which option you have selected and that your mailing and permanent addresses are accurate.
    • Diplomas are mailed to the student’s address selected on MyUW (local or permanent) two to three months following graduation.
