Senior Year – Fall & Spring Terms

Planning for Graduation

Ensuring that you complete the course requirements to obtain your undergraduate degree is an integral part of your overall academic planning. Good short, medium and long-term academic planning, reviewing your Academic Advisement Report each term, and frequent consultation with your advisor will help you stay on track.

It is essential that you notify the university of the date on which you intend to graduate. UB confers degrees three times per year (commencement ceremonies are only in May, however). In order to have the university complete a final, official degree audit and to have your degree conferred you must file an application for degree form by the deadline date. See the university Registrar website, Degrees & Graduation for further information.

Many academic units have their own school graduation ceremonies. Stay up-to-date with plans for commencement and life after UB through the Countdown to Commencement: A Senior Celebration.
