Graduation


Please submit questions through graduation@unt.edu; including both your name and student ID # will help ensure a speedy response.

After lots of hard work, graduation is quickly approaching for many of you. To graduate, you will need to complete the application steps listed below.

Applying for Graduation

It is the responsibility of the student to file the appropriate graduate degree applications with the Toulouse Graduate School. All application materials should be submitted to the Graduate School early in the semester. (See deadlines below.) Your completed application will include:

  1. Graduation Application Login and apply to graduate online.
  2. Approved Degree Plan from your Department (Copy). Submit this to the Toulouse Graduate School office or email electronic copy to graduation@unt.edu.
  3. UNT Graduating Student Survey
  4. College of Business Graduating Student Survey (For Graduates of the UNT College of Business ONLY)
  5. Survey of Earned Doctorates (Doctoral Students only). [Mac users:  Open the form in Adobe Acrobat and use the “save via email” link at the bottom.]

Your graduation application will only be accepted if you have a current 3.00 overall GPA and an approved degree plan on file with the Toulouse Graduate.

Please do not submit more than one application per degree; if you need to make a correction or add information, please send a separate email to graduation@unt.edu.

If you are pursuing more than one degree, you will need to submit a separate application for each degree. The major you select on the application needs to match the degree you are seeking (for example, if you are in both a PhD program and an MS program and are applying to graduate with the MS, the major you select should be for the MS, not the PhD.)
