|Fall||October 15||February 1|
|Spring||February 22||June 1|

Students are encouraged to Apply for Graduation well before the deadline dates. The status of degree application is available in your HUB Student Center (via MyUB) and your Academic Advisement Report. Students pursing their PhD should refer to the Graduate Requirements & Deadlines for complete details and deadline dates.
Law students (JD and LLML candidates) must complete an application for degree to be able to graduate. As the Law School has different deadlines and forms than the Graduate School, please contact the Law School Records Office at 716-645-2060 for more information. For more Law School commencement information, visit the Law School website.
DDS students should contact the School of Dental Medicine Office of Academic and Student Affairs for Degree Conferral Information. The office is located in 315 Squire Hall, and may be contacted by telephone 716-829-2839.
Settlement of Obligations
All tuition, fees, late charges and fines must be paid in order to receive diplomas or transcript services.
