Apply to Graduate

Greetings Graduate Students,

Are you graduating this semester? Did you know you must apply for graduation online via your Student Administration account? Did you know the deadline is the end of the 4th week of the semester?

If you missed the deadline, please apply ASAP in order to not delay the conferral of your degree. Summer candidates are asked to apply no later than March 1st to ensure their information makes the Commencement publication.

Information regarding graduation can be found on the Commencement webpage.

UConn Health Graduate students can find commencement information at the following link: UConn Health Commencement

Additional important dates and deadlines can be viewed on the Academic Calendar page. Friday, April 22, 2022 is the last day to upload a master’s thesis or doctoral dissertation in Submittable to qualify for a Spring 2022 conferral date. Visit the Master’s Degrees page or the Doctoral Degrees page for instructions and information about applying for graduation, submitting required paperwork, and uploading your thesis or dissertation.

All students are advised to review their transcript to ensure that it is in agreement with their plan of study. Any missing grades, documents, or discrepancies between a student’s plan of study and transcript can result in a delay of degree conferral or cancellation of degree candidacy.

*Important Note: Graduate students do NOT submit plans of study via Student Administration.  Plans of study are submitted via email to, and can be found on the Master’s Degree page, the Doctoral Degrees page or the Forms Section of the Registrar’s Office webpage
