Apply to Graduate

All students must apply for graduation when they plan to complete all degree and major requirements. The graduation application is available in the Student Center via My UW.

Students must indicate the term (semester and year) in which they will be completing all degree and major requirements. Students should also indicate whether they plan to attend a commencement ceremony.

For help applying for graduation or selecting a commencement ceremony, please visit our 'Applying for Graduation' instruction page.


Graduate School degree students:
In addition to applying for graduation, all Graduate School Master's and Doctoral students must contact their major program to request a warrant from the Graduate School. For more information see the Graduate School 'Completing Your Degree' web page.
