Undergraduate Application for Degree Candidacy

Prior to graduating from the University of Arizona, every student seeking a bachelor's degree must complete an application for degree candidacy and a senior degree check. This process allows you to work with an advisor to review your degree plan and ensure you have fulfilled all degree requirements. At this time, you will also submit all the paperwork required to graduate from The University of Arizona.

  • Spring and Summer Graduates – February 1 st of the intended semester ($50.00 application fee).
  • Fall and Winter Graduates – September 1 st of the intended semester ($50.00 application fee).

If you are planning on graduating from University of Arizona within the next two semesters and have not already submitted an application for degree candidacy, please apply online in your  UAccess Student Center . Detailed instructions can be found on the  Graduation Services website . The ideal time to begin this process is during the semester prior to your final semester at CAST. After applying online, contact your academic advisor to complete your final degree check.

For more information about applying for degree candidacy including graduation fees and where to send updated official transcripts for pending transfer work required for graduation, please visit  Graduation Services  or consult with your advisor.

Undergraduate Certificates

There is no deadline to apply for Undergraduate Certificates ($15.00 application fee). Please contact your academic advisor for details regarding the Application for Completion of Undergraduate Certificate form.

Certificates are awarded the next available conferral date after all coursework has been completed, approved by the granting college, and verified by Graduation Services.
