Apply to graduate

Undergraduate students

Find your application and graduation information in MyU: Academics > Degree Progress.

Make sure your APAS degree audit lists all majors, minors, or certificates you plan to complete.

Submit your application by the deadline.

  • Select the term you will complete your degree requirements.

Fall semester graduates may participate in either of the spring commencement ceremonies before or after degree completion.

Graduate students

Graduate degrees are awarded monthly. When you have completed the required milestones you will be able to access the Apply to Graduate link in the Degree Progress tab of MyU: Academics. 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 unable to access the link or, after applying, your degree plans change, email the Graduate School Office at umdgrad@d.umn.edu to request a new graduation month. Include your name, student ID number, and new graduation month.

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 is not listed, visit your program office or website to obtain detailed information about graduation and graduation dates.

Certificate Programs

Undergraduate, graduate or postbaccalaureate students should apply for completion during their last term of registration in certificate classes. Certificates are awarded at the end of each term, fall, spring and summer.
