When you complete the credits required to earn a degree it is noted on your academic record (transcript) and diploma. Undergraduates and Graduate students need to fill out their correct forms by certain deadlines.

What Happens When You Apply for Graduation

Grades will not be changed after degree conferral except in cases of administrative error.

Award Letters and Degree Conferral Status

The Office of the Registrar no longer provides award letters to students awaiting degree conferral. Official Transcripts now display a student’s award status; students whose award status is "Approved" in their HUB Student Center may request an Official Transcript in lieu of an award letter.
