When a student has reached 90 credit hours, they will be eligible to apply for graduation. Students need to visit http://registrar.utah.edu/handbook/undergradgraduation.php and print the Applying to Graduate checklist http://registrar.utah.edu/_pdf/UG-Advisor-Checklist.pdf.
To apply on or before the due date simply click on the “Apply for Graduation – Undergraduate” link under the Graduation menu box in Campus Information Services (CIS) and follow the instructions on each page. Note: This link does not become active until you have a minimum of 90 credits completed.
If you do not apply for graduation by the above stated deadline, you will be charged a late fee and may have your graduation delayed. Students are able to renew their graduation application once without penalty. Graduation applications will not be accepted more than one year in advance.
The Degree Audit Reporting System (DARS) is the official clearance tool for graduation. You, along with the academic advisor must ensure that your DARS report is clear (all green) in order for the Registrar’s Office, Graduation Division to award a degree. This means that all requirements have been completed and any exceptions have been entered by final grading deadlines. Students who finish work after the semester’s completion MUST reapply for graduation for a future semester.
The catalog year is important in this process. The catalog year reflects the date you declared your major or the year agreed upon by you and your advisor. The catalog year determines the set of requirements that need to be complete via the DARS report for graduation clearance.
You may choose a catalog year that was in effect no more than 4 years prior to graduation. The catalog year must be indicated on your graduation application
To do this, students must log into the Campus Information System (CIS) and click on the student tab, find the heading "Graduation Information." Under the subheading "Graduation", select "Graduate Student Degree Tracking". Students should also view the Graduation Overview for Masters Candidates on the Graduate School website.
