You must file the Intent
to Graduate form immediately after you register for your final
semester at UW-L.
December or Winter Intersession (J-term) graduates should file by May 1st. May or Summer graduates should file by December 1st.
Graduate and Undergraduate students should complete an "Intent to Graduate" form which can be found on your Student Center in WINGS. Click the Group Box drop down arrow found under the Academics section of your Student Center. Click Apply For Graduation and hit the double arrow icon (this will take you to the My Academic's page). Click on your Academic Program link. Select the Expected Graduation Term and hit Continue. Read the Graduation Instructions and Continue. Verify that all of the information is correct. If so, click on Submit Application. If not, click the Select Different Program and make the necessary adjustments.
Students wishing to apply for an Associate Degree or who are in a Certificate program need to fill out a form in the Records & Registration Office, 117 Graff Main Hall.
Your Dean's Office verifies to the university whether or not you have met all the requirements for your degree. You are expected to have met with that office before your final semester begins, to confirm you will meet all degree requirements. If you have not already had this meeting, immediately contact your Dean's Office to arrange an appointment with appropriate personnel for this review.
You should also review your Advisement Report (AR) after you have finished registering for your final semester, and raise any concerns or questions with your Dean's Office.
The Records Office will send an e-mail shortly after mid-semester of your graduation term with instructions and details about commencement.
