Degree Application Form

Log in to the UF Office of the Registrar’s ONE.UF website, click on Student Self Service. Click on My Records, on the menu to your left, to access the Degree Application online. Click here for Critical Dates.

Degree Candidate Status Verification Form (pdf)

This service is provided until 3 weeks before graduation. However, students who before that time have completed all requirements for the degree filed the fully signed final examination report in GIMS and achieved final clearance of the thesis or dissertation may request verification to that effect. Verification of Degree Candidate Status Request Forms are filled out by the candidate; signed by the supervisory committee chair, department chair, college dean, and the Graduate School Editorial Office (121 Grinter Hall); then given to Graduate Student Records (106 Grinter Hall), for verification and processing.

Although a student may have fulfilled academic requirements, the degree is not awarded until the Graduate School certifies the degree to the University Registrar. That is done at the end of Fall, Spring, and Summer C terms for all students who completed degree requirements and applied to graduate. Some employers and licensure boards require the degree statement on the transcript, which is available about 3 days after certification in December, May, and August.
