Some programmes may slightly differ from the procedure below. It is best to check your study programme's information page on graduation to see the exact procedure.

Your faculty’s Board of Examiners determines when you graduate and what your final examination date (the date on your diploma) will be. You will have graduated when you meet all examination requirements. The Board of Examiners or your faculty student desk will inform you by email as soon as you meet (nearly) all examination requirements. So keep a close eye on your UU email account!

Please note: Graduating does not always mean your enrolment will end automatically. If you wish to terminate your enrolment before the end of the academic year, you have to do so yourself.
