Graduation


Graduating next semester? Once you complete your registration for your last semester, you will also need to submit a graduation application by the deadline posted on the Academic Calendar.

Apply on time

  1. Student must contact the Advising Office to be made eligible for graduation at least 24 hours before the graduation application deadline. It is highly recommended that the student contact Advising as soon as registration begins for their graduating semester.
  2. Submit your graduation application in Galaxy after your advisor has made you eligible to apply. You will receive an email with the step-by-step instructions on how to apply for graduation.
  3. Once you apply, check your UTD email for your graduation application confirmation. Keep this for your records.
  4. Review the Graduation Checklist

Your graduation application must be submitted by the deadline listed on the Academic Calendar to avoid late fees and delays in your graduating semester. If you do not receive either of the emails outlined in Step 2 and 3, contact your advisor promptly.

Commencement Ceremony

Please make sure to RSVP by the deadline listed on the Graduation Checklist page if you are interested in participating in the graduation ceremony. You will be prompted to indicate your intent when you apply for graduation. Once you RSVP, you will receive an email confirmation – keep it for your records. Be advised that the commencement ceremony is not mandatory.

Congratulations!
