Apply to graduate
If you miss the deadline or your plans change after you complete your Application for Degree, you will not be able to update your expected graduation term online and will need to fill out a Petition to Change Expected Graduation Term form and contact One Stop Student Services with your name, student ID number, and updated term of graduation.
Graduate degrees are awarded monthly. To graduate at the end of any given month, submit your Application for Degree by the first day of the month you would like to graduate. For example, if you want to graduate in March, submit your application by March 1. If you are pursuing a graduate degree, you can find additional degree materials on the UMD Graduate School website. Please return completed paper forms to the Graduate School Office, 431 Darland Administration Building.
If your degree program’s forms are not listed, please visit your program office or website to obtain detailed information about graduation and graduation dates.
