How to know if there are problems with your application:

If potential graduates are missing graduation requirements at the time of applying, the Graduation Office will notify students via their Graduation Application. It is the student's responsibility to complete all requirements needed to graduate by the completion deadlines found in the students graduation application approval email.

Approximately 8-10 weeks after the end of the semester, graduation deficiency notices will show in the Degree Information link under My  Registration & Academics in myUVU.
