Graduation checklist for undergrads

Knowing what your degree requirements are and if you are fulfilling them, when to apply to graduate, and talking to your advisor will help you prepare for the final steps of your academic experience at the University of Minnesota.

Commencement and after

Commencement is your graduation ceremony. These events are typically planned by your college. If you have any questions, your college will be the best resource.
