Graduation FAQs

This fee covers the processes for awarding the university graduates their diplomas, including the ordering of the diploma. This one-time fee will show on your bursar account in the term before the term in which you are graduating.

For information on ordering official transcripts, visit the Office of the Registrar.

The CVM curriculum is Pass/Fail; therefore, no GPA is reported.

The date the degree is officially awarded is not the graduation date. The Office of the Registrar cannot award before the conferral date.

Check out more information about important degree dates and deadlines.

The graduation/commencement date is the celebration of the awarding of the diploma. The conferral date is when the degree is officially awarded. 

Currently, all CVM degrees are awarded manually; please allow 3 to 4 weeks for processing.

Check the Graduation Status in UAccess Student Center to find the status.  The degree award date will correspond with that term's Main Campus Conferral dates.

More information about important degree dates and deadlines

You should expect your diploma approximately two to three weeks after your degree is posted (awarded).
