12 Clicks to Graduation

Degree Application Submission Process

Before submitting your application to graduate, please be sure you have completed the following steps:

  • Meet with your academic adviser to discuss your degree completion plan.
  • Register for all classes needed to complete your degree requirements.  Courses that you cannot register for (e.g. internships, specialized study, summer classes not yet scheduled, transfer courses) should be noted as courses to be added when available/approved in step 9 of the 12-click application process outlined below.
  • Verify you have a minimum of 192 credits (200 credits for engineering majors).
  • Verify you have a minimum of 60 upper-division credits.
  • Submit your application three quarters in advance of your expected graduation term.
  • If you are planning to graduate at the end of fall term, submit your application early in the spring quarter prior to your anticipated graduation term.

You have successfully applied to graduate.
Your request will be available for review by your department chair/dean in approximately 24 hours. Once approved by your chair/dean for each major and/or minor listed, your request will be forwarded to Academic Records for final approval. Because of the high number of requests being processed, please allow 8–10 weeks for a response. All communication relating to this request will be sent through your WWU email including your final approval notification. Please also watch your myWWU checklist for outstanding items you will need to complete to be eligible to march in commencement and receive your degree.
