Degree Application and Graduation

This information is for graduate students in the Physical Sciences Division.

Applying to Graduate

Once you have satisfied the requirements of your program, you must apply to graduate for the quarter in which you expect to receive your degree. You can do so by submitting a degree application at my.uchicago.edu.

Once you have logged in to my.uchicago.edu, click on the ‘Academics’ tab and set your Expected Graduation Date to the current quarter to access the application. All degree applications are due by 5:00 PM (CST) on Friday of the first week of the quarter in which you would like to graduate.

Degree applications are valid only for the quarter in which they are made. If you are unable to graduate by the end of that quarter, you will need to reapply. If you need to withdraw your degree application, please contact the Dean of Students Office at psd-dos@lists.uchicago.edu. Please note that applications withdrawn after Friday of the fifth week of a quarter will be subject to a fee.

International students receiving any terminal degree should notify the Office of International Affairs.

Convocation

Convocation takes place at the end of Spring Quarter. Students graduating in Autumn, Winter, or Spring Quarters are welcome to participate in convocation and can indicate their intention when completing their degree application.
