All undergraduate students must complete an application for degree with the Office of the Registrar one semester before they intend to complete their remaining requirements.  Degree candidates must apply no later than thirty days prior to the commencement ceremony. Degree candidates can apply online. The completed degree evaluation, including all remaining degree requirements, will be sent by UCM email approximately 1-2 weeks after receipt of the application. If, after 1-2 weeks, you do not receive the email indicating the graduation list to which you have been added and your remaining degree requirements, please contact the Registrar's Office.
