- Outstanding incompletes
- Non-reported grades

Apply for Graduation (Required)
It is recommended that undergraduates apply for graduation once their Degree Progress bar has reached 80% in Degree Works; graduate students after completing 24 semester credit hours. Apply for graduation before the application deadlines. The application can be submitted up to a year before your semester of graduation, but no later than the deadline. Once your application has been received, you will be notified of your degree status by your advising center. You cannot graduate without submitting an application!
Verify Diploma Information
Update your diploma address and check your diploma name on ASAP to ensure that your diploma name appears as it should and that it is sent to the correct address. If you update your diploma address after the close of the semester, send an email to email@example.com to ensure that the change has been updated on the diploma list.
Transcripts and diplomas will only be sent out to students with no obligations to the university. Log onto ASAP to view your holds.
