Commencement Procedures & Timelines
Deadlines to apply for degree can be found on the academic calendar or here.
You must complete an Application for Degree during the semester in which you plan to graduate. Log onto mavlink and fill out the application on or before the deadline.
There is a $35.00 Application for Degree Fee payable at the time the application is submitted. (You can still apply to graduate after the deadline date to apply for degree; however, an additional $35 late fee will be assessed for all late applications.)
After applying for your degree, you should visit the UNO Bookstore as soon as possible to order your cap and gown (if you plan to participate in commencement) and graduation announcements. Deadlines to order various items will differ depending on the ceremony in which you plan to participate. Please contact the Bookstore at 402.554.2336 with any questions.
- Graduate students should be aware of all important deadline dates for the semester in which they wish to graduate, including the deadline to submit comprehensive exam results, all incomplete grades from previous terms, and final copies of theses, thesis-equivalent projects, EdS field projects and dissertations. Deadlines can be found on the Graduation Checklist.
Students have 15 working days after the commencement ceremony, (or 15 working days after the final day of the summer semester, in the case of August graduation) to complete all degree requirements that they are currently enrolled in for that semester. Diplomas will be mailed as soon as possible after the 15 working days have passed. Please be sure all holds are cleared and that the address listed on the degree application is correct as this is where your diploma will be mailed.
Please contact the Registrar's Office, 402.554.2314, with additional questions.
