 Frequently Asked Questions

I anticipate I will meet all requirements for my degree by December 15, 2016. How do I apply to graduate?
What kind of information will I need to provide on the graduation application?
My plans have changed and I will no longer be living at the address I thought I would be when I filled out my graduation application. If I change my address via my UNCGenie account will that change my diploma mailing address automatically?
I applied to graduate and after speaking with my advisor I realize I will NOT meet all of my degree requirements until the Spring Term or maybe even the Summer Term. What should I do?
I spoke with my faculty advisor and it looks like I will need to take 1 course during the summer… It is just 1 course… Will I still be considered a May graduate?
I will be taking courses at another institution to complete my degree requirements, how can I go about ensuring the credits are applied to my degree at UNCG?
 ***Failure to meet those deadlines or have a course approved by the University Registrar’s Office may delay your graduation by a term. Please stay in touch with the University Registrar's Office to ensure that your transcript from the other institution is received by UNCG in a timely manner in order for those credits to be properly evaluated. ***
 

Degrees are not earned based on participation in the university-wide and/or department commencement ceremony. A member of the Graduation Services Department will conduct a final audit of the candidate’s file once all grades are finalized.* Any candidate who fails to meet the requirements for the degree will be denied clearance, thus allowing the candidate to reapply for the subsequent term. Once the official audit shows that all requirements are met by the ceremony date in which the candidate applied for, the degree will be submitted for final confirmation. The awarding of degrees and availability of the official documentation is subject to administrative processes within the University Registrar’s Office.
