Graduation Information

Do you plan to graduate this semester? Next semester?

Follow these steps to be sure you are right on track!

Step 1:

Review your Degree Works Audit


Where can I find my Degree Works Audit?

Your Degree Works audit is located in your myWSU portal > myClasses > View My Degree Evaluation/Audit.

What should I be looking for?

  • Confirm remaining course and graduation requirements.
  • Verify that your major is listed correctly and that any minors/concentrations are reflected. If you need to update your major or minor, do so via the Change My Major/Minor app. It is located in your myWSU portal > Home > Student Tools.
  • Verify that all college work is represented on your audit. ALL official college transcripts must be sent to WSU before your degree will be posted, even if these courses are not needed to meet WSU degree requirements.                                                                                                                                                   

What if something is incorrect on my audit?

Email with your name, WSU ID, and concern.

Step 2:

Complete your Application for Degree (AFD)

Once you have reviewed your Degree Works audit, you should submit your Application for Degree. This notifies the college of your intent to graduate and begins the process of auditing your academic record to confirm that you will meet all degree requirements. The AFD also lets you list your name as you wish it to appear on your diploma.

NOTE: All undergraduate seniors must complete an Application for Degree (AFD) in order to graduate.

Where can I find the Application for Degree?

The AFD is located in your myWSU portal > myClasses > Graduation Links.

When should I complete the AFD?

You are expected to submit the AFD two semesters before your expected date of graduation.

Recommended Deadlines:

  • Spring/Summer Graduates: September 1
  • Fall Graduates: February 1

What if I add a minor after my AFD is submitted?

You can make a request to add a minor to your record by emailing Include your name, WSU ID, and request.

What if I need to make other changes to my AFD?

Please email with questions.
