The GWSB Office of Graduate Programs is responsible for ensuring all graduate students have met the university and graduate degree requirements for graduation. Degree clearance is typically completed eight weeks after the end of the semester in which the student applied to graduate.

Once the graduate degree is awarded, Graduation Services will order your diploma. Additional information about the diploma ordering timeline is available on the Diplomas and Certificates page. If your diploma address will change after graduation, you must update your address via GWeb or by submitting a Change of Address Form. Be sure to select the "Diploma" address type from the list on that form.

Students who have not received their diploma 16 weeks after their graduation date should review their unofficial transcript on GWeb to verify that the degree was awarded. If awarded, students must contact Graduation Services.

Students whose degrees were not awarded should contact their academic advisor for assistance.
