Certifying your Degree The University establishes a degree certification date following the completion of each term. If you are on the graduation list you must complete all degree requirements, including adding your name to the pending degree list. It typically takes the college 2 months after the end of the semester to certify degrees and mail the diploma.
Notify the college of your intent to graduate by the 10th day of class of Spring Semester 2019 by adding yourself to the graduation list. Visit Self Service and click "Graduation" tab.
View your Degree Audit Report to determine if you have met all of th requirements for graduation
Contact your Department Advisor of FAA Academic Affairs regarding any concerns.
Add name to degree certification list/Apply for graduation – Students must add their name to the degree list using UI Integrate Self-Service. Last day for GRAD to add themselves to May degree list via Student Self-Service is March 31, 2019. If the student is unable to apply for graduation via Self-Service, the department will need to add the student by the deadline. See the Academic Calendar for deadlines. Information about the process is available through the Graduate Student Academic Services Office in the Graduate College.
Audit of degree requirements by the department – Be sure all degree requirements are completed. Becky Ferrell is authorized (on the Authorized Signature Form) to certify degree requirements have been met.
Diplomas Because it is not possible to process grades and prepare degree lists by Commencement weekend, diplomas will be mailed to May 2019 graduates by mid-July. Additional information can be found at http://registrar.illinois.edu/diplomas. Diploma Mailing Address: The primary address that will be used to mail your diploma is the "Diploma Address." If the Diploma Address is unavailable, it will be mailed to the "Permanent Address." Students should check and update their "Diploma Address" at http://apps.uillinois.edu/selfservice/. If your diploma is returned to the Office of the Registrar, you will be responsible for providing a corrected address and paying for any forwarding mail charges. Name Change: Information for instructions on changing your name to the version which will appear on your diploma and transcript can be found at http://www.registrar.uiuc.edu/changing-your-personal-information.
