Please read the following information carefully:

  • Before completing the online application (see below link), students should consult with their academic advisors to verify which courses are needed to complete degree requirements. For additional questions about degree requirements, please see the UAB Catalog.

  • Students should fill out this application completely. Any information not listed or incorrectly listed will result in the application being returned to the student, thereby delaying your application process.

  • Upon submitting the Application for Degree, students will receive an email with a copy of the application to retain for their records. Once your application has been reviewed by the Registrar’s Office, you will receive a second email informing you that your degree application has been sent to your advisor for departmental approval. After your degree application is returned from your advisor, you will receive a third email from the Registrar’s Office informing you that your degree application has been approved or denied.

  • A diploma cannot be mailed to students who have any financial obligation to UAB.  Students with financial obligations should notify the Registrar's office once their accounts are clear.

  • Students who do not take, pass, or receive a grade in a course(s) indicated on their Application for Degree will not receive degrees. These students should check with their academic advisors to discuss options.

  • Students who do not meet their degree requirements by the time of their expected graduation date will need to change their graduation date. Please do not fill out another Application for Degree; fill out the Change of Graduation Date Form.
  • Diplomas will be mailed to the address listed on the Application for Degree in 5-6 weeks after grades for the semester are posted on BlazerNET.
