The College awards the B.A. or the B.S. degree to qualified students who are recommended by the faculty. In order to qualify for the degree, you must complete the following:
Completion of a 'College Degree Application' form, which is available at the Office of the University Registrar (Admin 103) or the Advising Reception desk, and is due by Friday of the first week of the quarter of graduation. Return the completed form to either the Registrar's Office or the Advising Reception desk.
Note: If the name on the diploma will not match the name on the transcript, complete a 'Change of Name/Address' form. If you have questions, call the University Registrar at 773-702-7891.
Since Summer Quarter graduation deadlines change annually, check with a College adviser or the University Registrar.
Bursar balances of more than $200 must be cleared by Friday of ninth week of the quarter of graduation.
By the start of the quarter of graduation, you should have:
Students who do not meet all graduation requirements by the appropriate deadlines will be removed from the convocation list, assessed a cancellation fee, and required to submit a new degree application prior to the anticipated quarter of graduation.
Only students who have completed all degree requirements can march in the convocation ceremony. This includes students on leave of absence. Convocation tickets are available on your class web page.
Your CNet account and personal web page will be deactivated two quarters after graduation unless you are pursuing a graduate degree or employed by the University. The University of Chicago Alumni Association offers free, permanent email addresses.
Make an appointment with your adviser at the reception desk (Harper, 2nd Floor) or by calling 773-702-8615. You can reach the Adviser-on Call for urgent issues at this number too.
