Degree Application

Degree candidates must complete an online degree application on student.ufl.edu. (Select My Record > Certificate/Degree Application from the left menu.)

Students must apply in the term in which they expect to graduate, regardless of applications in previous terms. All requirements for the degree must be completed as of the date of certification. Students who have completed all the requirements for their degree will be required to graduate.

The honors designations listed in the commencement program are unofficial. Your official honors designation will be indicated on your diploma and transcript.


Late Degree Information

To be added to the degree candidate list after the deadline for the current term, undergraduate students must petition their college dean's office by the last day of classes. Please follow the instructions below.

Graduate Students

For fall and spring terms, graduate students have until the published mid-point deadline of the term to apply late for a degree. Students must contact their college dean's office for assistance. Graduate students who do not apply by the midpoint of the term must apply to graduate the following term.

For Summer B/C terms, there is no late degree application process. If you miss the degree application deadline in ONE.UF, you must apply to graduate the following term.

All Other Students

Petition with your college to be allowed to apply for graduation after the deadline.

Because you are applying after the deadline, there is a possibility that your name will not appear in the commencement program.

Important Information for all Late Degree Applicants

If you have been approved by your dean's office as a degree candidate and you plan to participate in commencement, allow 48 hours to process your application. Your degree information must be available electronically in the bookstore before they can process your regalia information.

Because you are applying after the deadline, there is a possibility that your name will not appear in the commencement program.

Official Diplomas

Diplomas are ordered after the term is over and will be sent to the permanent home address on file approximately 8 weeks after graduation. Please verify your permanent home mailing address.
