Late Application/Reapplication:

A Late Application/Reapplication for Undergraduate Degree is required in the following cases: 

  • Applicants who missed the deadline to apply on time.
  • Candidates who have been denied graduation in a previous semester.
  • Candidates who have already renewed their applications to a future semester or failed to renew by the last day of classes for the current applied term. 

Failure to reapply on time may delay your graduation.

Reapplications should be submitted no later than the beginning of the graduating term.

Reapplications will not be accepted more than one year in advance.

Renewal:

If plans change, students who have already applied for graduation may “renew” their application to a future expected graduation term one time for free before the last day of classes for the current applied term.  To “renew” your application, send an email from your Umail account to graduation@utah.edu requesting a change to your expected graduation term to the new term you plan to be completed.  All subsequent changes will require submission of a Late/Reapplication for Undergraduate Degree and payment of a $25 processing fee.  

Other Changes to Submitted Applications: 

Once you have applied to graduate, subsequent changes can be made by submitting the Notification of Graduation Change form to graduation@utah.edu from your Umail account.
