Graduation is an opportunity to be recognized for your academic accomplishments and celebrate with family and friends this important milestone. Follow the steps below to prepare for your UCF graduation.


Be aware of important dates and deadlines. Check the UCF Academic Calendar for important dates and deadlines, notably the Graduation Application for Undergraduate Students deadline (also known as Intent to Graduate).

File your Intent to Graduate. The deadline to submit your Intent to Graduate occurs during the semester preceding the semester you intend to graduate. File your Intent to Graduate form online through myUCF.
Student Self Service >> Other Academic Menu >> Intent to Graduate

Review your myKnight Audit. Access and review your myKnight Audit for any outstanding degree requirements or other items (missing transfer credit, course substitutions, etc.) that you may need help updating or correcting.

Meet with your academic advisor. Discuss any questions or concerns you have regarding academic policies and procedures, major requirements, and graduation. Your academic advisor will make sure you are on track for your major and will be able to graduate by your intended date.

Enroll in courses. Enroll exclusively in UCF courses (no transient courses) for the final term of enrollment during the registration enrollment appointment. See myUCF for the date and time of your enrollment appointment.

Update your information. Verify that your personal information (phone number, email address, mailing address) and academic information in myUCF is current and update it if needed.

Check Your Knights Email: Your Knights email is the official method of communication for the University. All UCF offices will communicate vital information related to the Intent to Graduate process through your Knights email, including the Registrar’s Office and academic advisors.

Check the commencement website. Visit the commencement website for cap and gown information, ticket information, a schedule of events, and additional resources to prepare for your big day.

Resolve holds.  Holds may be placed on your record for various reasons and may restrict any or all of the following: course registration, the release of grades, the release of transcripts, and the release of diploma. See the Holds page for more information about how to resolve your holds.

Learn specific requirements for your college. The graduation requirements for each college vary, so be sure to visit their website or your college advisor for information on any additional requirements.
