Apply to Graduate

Students must apply for graduation to attend the ceremony and receive their diploma. Graduates are required to complete the application, even if they have missed the deadline for their name to be listed in the program. The March 29 deadline to have your name printed in the commencement program has passed. If you applied by the deadline, your name will be in the printed program.

All graduate students should apply for graduation in the MyUW Student Center to note their preferences for commencement. Visit the Graduate School’s website for additional information about completing your Master’s degree and Doctoral degree.

I’m eligible to graduate. Do I need to sign up for commencement?

Graduates who are completing their degree requirements within one semester of spring 2024 can participate in the ceremony. There is no separate registration process for commencement, and there is no master list that students’ names are read from at the Friday ceremony.
