Graduation Questions

What do I need to do to Graduate?

Students must fulfill both the requirements for the major and the university graduation requirements to receive a degree from the University of Central Florida. Use this checklist and your Degree Audit as a guide in monitoring your progress toward degree requirements.

How do I file my intent to graduate?

In most cases, you will need to file for graduation though MyUCF, complete the COS Gradform, and attend a COSAS graduation workshop. All three of these requirements must be completed in your second-to-last semester, so timing is important! Check out our Graduation page for more specific details.

Where can I find out when the next Graduation Workshop will be?

Once you have filed your intent to graduate you will receive an email informing you about Graduation Workshop dates. Typically, workshops are held a couple of weeks before the semester you will graduate begins.

What is the COS Gradform?

Visit https://gradform.cos.ucf.edu/ to begin your COS Gradform. This website will help you file the digital paperwork required for you to graduate. This online questionnaire is for our COSAS advisors to review and make sure all requirements are being met. After clicking start, you will be guided through the process. First you will be asked for information regarding yourself, and your major. Then you must agree to the conditions set forth by the College of Sciences. Finally, you will be asked to specify any deficiencies regarding your progress towards graduation.

I've received an email requesting additional information on my intent to graduate, what do I need to do?

Follow the instructions in the email. If you have any more questions, please email cosgraduation@ucf.edu

I have two or more majors, do I get a diploma for each?

Per the Undergraduate Student Catalog, A student may earn one degree, with two majors, by completing all the requirements for both majors. Students earning a double major must use the same Catalog year for both majors.

When you graduate, you will receive one diploma, which both majors indicated on it.

For a double degree a student may earn 2 degrees (and diplomas) by completing the requirements for both majors and earning a minimum of 150 credit hours. If you are a double degree student than you will receive two diplomas; one for each degree.

What is the difference between Double Major and Double Degree?

  • If either major leads to a BA degree, these requirements include the BA Foreign Language Proficiency requirement.
