Posting of Degrees

Posting of Degrees

It takes 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 could be a couple weeks, or it could be as long as three months after the end of your final term. Posted degrees appear on both an Official Transcript and an Unofficial Student Record.

 

What can you do?

Periodically check in your Student Center to see if your degree has been posted. You can access this information by following these steps:

1.      Login to your Student Center via My UW

2.      Go to “My Academics”

3.      Click on “View my degrees”

 

Once your degree is posted, it will show in this location. Posted degrees also appear on both an Official Transcript and an Unofficial Student Record

 

Graduate students

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. Please contact us at certs@em.wisc.edu to request a degree completion letter. 

 

Degree Verification Letters

Once your degree has been posted to your student record/transcript, you can obtain an official PDF degree verification letter through self-service in your Student Center. The PDF version is an official letter. The PDF will be available for immediate download after following these steps:

1.      Login to your Student Center via My UW

2.      Go to “My Academics”

3.      Click on “View my degrees”

4.      Click on “Print degree letter”

5.      Download PDF degree verification

 

If the PDF option doesn’t fulfill your needs because you require a paper copy, need additional text in the letter, or something else, please contact us at certs@em.wisc.edu with additional questions.
