Posting of Degrees
It may take some time for your degree to be posted and appear on your record after your date of graduation.
The amount of time is variable depending on the school or college within the university that is granting your degree. It may be as long as 3 months after the end of your final term.
What can you do?
Periodically check in the Student Center on MyUW Madison under the "Degree Summary" link. Once your degree is posted, it will show in that location.
If you have completed all degree requirements and deposited your thesis or dissertation and are waiting until the next degree conferral date to receive your degree, you may request and receive a letter indicating that all requirements have been completed.
If requested, after graduation, you may receive a typed Certificate of Graduation, which may be used for all official purposes until your diploma is available.
