When To Apply For Graduation
Before applying to graduate, check your degree audit and meet with your academic advisor and ensure that any outstanding course work issues will be met. The application should be filed during the semester prior to the semester of graduation, preferably during the advising period for your final semester.

How To Apply
- Login to VandalWeb and select the Apply for Degree option under the Student Information/Registration Menu. If you are receiving more than one degree (e.g., B.S. and B.A or B.S.Arch. and M.S.Arch), you will need to file a separate application for each degree. Follow the instructions carefully and make your selections. Make sure to print your application(s) when finished.
- Undergraduate students must also complete the Graduating Senior Survey.
- Meet with your academic advisor or major professor to obtain their signature on your application, approving your degree requirements. Remember that advisors are not available during dead week and finals week.
- Undergraduates turn in your signed application(s) to your College Dean's office; graduate students submit to the College of Graduate Studies. Your application process is not complete until the printed application(s) are received in your College Dean's office.
- Pay the application fee(s) to the Student Accounts/Cashiers.

Graduation refers to actually receiving a degree from the University of Idaho after you have satisfied all requirements. Graduation certification begins after final semester grades are posted and continues until diplomas are printed and mailed the sixth week after the end of the semester.
Commencement is a ceremony and opportunity for students, families, friends and the University of Idaho community to celebrate their academic accomplishments. Participation in the ceremony does not mean you have graduated as you will not receive your diploma or degree on that day.
