Graduation

Undergraduate Student Services is the primary office that students should interact with when seeking information about graduation. All undergraduate students in the College of Health and Public Affairs are certified for graduation by Undergraduate Student Services. Students need to follow the steps listed below:

Students file the intent to graduate the semester before they graduate. The application is found online in the myUCF portal:

myUCF > Student Self Service > My Academics > Apply for Graduation


Screenshot For Graduation

  1. Students should be registered for all final courses prior to filing the Intent to Graduate online. Students must be enrolled at UCF during the graduation term. Students are given approximately 4 months to meet the deadline to apply for graduation. The intent to graduate must be filed online in order to participate in the commencement ceremony.
  2. Majors, minors, and/or certificates must be met or in progress when the intent to graduate is submitted. If a major, minor, and/or certificate needs to be removed from the student's profile, it must be dropped online prior to submitting the intent to graduate. Students must submit a separate intent for any certificates (i.e. Crime Profiling, Crime Scene Investigation).
  3. Students will receive email communications from USS concerning the intent to graduate submission. If the myKnight degree audit indicates, "All Declared Programs Satisfied" student's name will automatically be added to the graduation list. If the myKnight degree audit indicates, "At Least One Declared Program Not Satisfied," there are missing requirements and the student is required to make an appointment with Undergraduate Student Services.
  4. The "Pending" status in myUCF will not change until after grades have posted for the final semester. Meeting with an advisor will not change the "Pending" status. Survey completion will not hinder graduation. Graduation is solely based upon all degree requirements being met.
