How to Apply for Graduation

Graduation is not automatic. Prospective graduates must complete the online Graduation Application via their Wolverine Track in UVLink. Applicants may also be required to fill out additional forms/surveys. Transcripts from other colleges/universities do not have to be received at UVU prior to completing the graduation application, but must be received before degrees may be awarded.

To access the Graduation Application via Wolverine Track in UVLink:
(Read all instructions prior to linking to UVLink)

  1. Login to UVLink;
  2. Click on the Wolverine Track logo (located on the top right between Canvas and E-mail logos);
    • OR Click on the Student tab then Finishing Your Education link then Wolverine Track link;
  3. Click on the Launch Wolverine Track button;
  4. In the new Wolverine Track window, click on the Apply for Graduation link;
    * located under Degree Progress bar - highlighted in yellow (75% complete or above) or tan (below 75% complete)

  5. In the new Graduation Application window, read all text and answer all questions on every page until you reach the Submitted for Review - 100% Complete page;
  6. When finished, close the Graduation Application and Wolverine Track windows.

* The default web browser for Android mobile devices currently does not allow optimal functionality with Wolverine Track.

After submitting the application, check your UVLink e-mail. You will receive 2 e-mails per application:
(contact the Graduation Office immediately if you do not receive these e-mails)

  1. Copy of your graduation application (received immediately);
  2. Confirmation from the graduation office after they have reviewed and accepted - or not accepted - your application (received within 1-2 weeks).

The graduation office will notify students in the confirmation e-mail of any requirements listed in the My Grad Track Audit which the student did not indicate while completing the graduation application. It is the student's responsibility to complete all requirements listed on the application, associated audit and e-mail(s) from the graduation office during the application semester.
