Although commencement exercises take place immediately after the completion of finals week, your final grades will not post immediately, nor will the results of your final degree audit. If your final degree audit check is satisfactory, your degree will be posted to your academic record. If your final degree audit check is not satisfactory, you will receive a letter informing you why you did not graduate and that you will need to reapply for a future term.
After your degree has been officially conferred, transcripts and diplomas will become available. For more information, contact:
Office of Records, Davis Hall 129
Master’s and Doctoral Degrees:
UT Arlington Graduate School, 333 Davis Hall
IF, IN MYMAV, YOU HAVE OPTED TO RESTRICT DIRECTORY INFORMATION, YOUR NAME WILL NOT APPEAR IN THE PRINTED COMMENCEMENT PROGRAM UNLESS YOU CHANGE THAT RESTRICTION.
If you successfully completed your course work and were enrolled only at UT Arlington, your degree should be posted to your transcript within 4-6 weeks of your commencement ceremony. If you were taking classes at another institution during the graduation term, have an incomplete grade, or are awaiting exam credit, additional time may be needed before your degree can be awarded and posted to your transcript. UT Arlington cannot award a degree that includes transfer credit hours in the degree plan until it receives and has evaluated official transcripts from the colleges and universities from which the transfer credit was earned.
Diplomas will be ready approximately 6-8 weeks after commencement ceremonies. If you requested on your application for graduation that you wanted your diploma mailed, it will be sent to you via USPS Certified mail (within the USA) or via USPS Registered mail (International). A signature will be required for delivery. If you requested on your application for graduation that you wanted to pick up your diploma, you will receive an email message letting you know your diploma is ready. The message will be sent to the email address you provided on your application for graduation. Graduates must provide a photo ID to pickup their diplomas in the Office of Graduate Studies. Graduates with account balances or transcript holds must clear those balances before their diploma can be released.
