Graduation Deadlines and Procedures

Apply for Graduation Online

Students must be enrolled in or have all degree requirements completed to participate in commencement. Students will not be allowed to march in a ceremony prior to the term in which they have applied.

If you will be transferring in coursework from another institution to satisfy degree requirements, you must complete that coursework by the end of UHV’s term for which you have applied for graduation. The official transcript from the other university must be sent to UHV no later than two weeks after commencement.
