Semester Prior to Graduation: Official Degree Check

This is a review of your final degree requirements performed by an academic advisor in the College of Liberal Arts Student Division. Official degree checks are intended to complement, not replace, regular semester-by-semester meetings with your departmental academic advisor. You must have at least 90 hours completed and an officially declared major and minor. Official degree checks are to be completed during the semester prior to your intended graduation.

Call 512-471-4271 to schedule an appointment.

Final Semester: Apply to Graduate

You must apply for graduation in your final semester. All completed coursework must be posted to the official record at the time the graduation application is processed; if concurrently enrolled at another institution, verification of enrollment must be provided in order to apply. The graduation application is available online from the thirteenth class day to the mid-semester deadline, and in-person in GEB 2.306 from the thirteenth class day to last class day.
