Ready to Graduate

Grad caps

Apply to graduate online at by April 30.

I just completed all my required courses successfully to graduate.  What happens now?

Congratulations!! Once all the grades are in from your professors, Western has to complete the adjudication process. They will be checking each student’s record to make sure you have met all requirements for your degree.

To make sure adjudication was successful, log on to Student Center. Under the Academic tab, select View My Grades. You will see all your final grades. Select the tab at the top titled Grade Report. In the Remarks section at the bottom of this screen, it will say whether you are to proceed to graduate.

Get ready to convocate!
