After applying for graduation, students will go through a final set of degree audits in order to ensure they have met all the requirements to graduate from UNCG. Undergraduate Degree Clearance audits are conducted by a special team within the University Registrar’s Office and the process is documented below. Graduate Degree Clearance is handled by the Graduate School; additional information on Graduate Degree Clearance can be found on the Graduate School site.

Initial audit

Around the midpoint of the student’s final term, they will receive notification through their official UNCG email confirming their program of study information and providing a status update about how they are progressing in their final semester. Students will see one of the following statuses:

Final Audit

At the end of the term, the degree clearance team will conduct a final audit of each student’s graduation application.  The student’s application for graduation will either be approved or denied based on final coursework for the term. Students will receive a message to their UNCG email address with one of two statuses.

Students who do not successfully complete final requirements to graduate must reapply for the next term (or a determined future term) when they expect to finish their degree.
