UNCW Graduation Deadlines & Application (All Locations)

In order to graduate from UNCW (main campus or extension), you must fill out and submit a graduation application before the published deadline.

* There is not a summer commencement. Summer graduates participate in the fall commencement.
Please Note: Graduate students must apply for graduation by filling out this form through the Graduate School.


Diplomas are ordered about 6-8 weeks after the date of graduation. They will be mailed directly from the vendor to the diploma mailing address listed on your graduation application. Diplomas are shipped through the United States Postal Service, therefore, it is important you provide a mailing address that reflects where you will be living two months after graduation rather than where you are currently living.

Your Diploma will be mailed to the address you provided on your graduation application. If this address has changed, you must notify graduation@uncw.edu to get your address updated. Updating your address in SeaNet will not change your diploma mailing address.


Regalia Information for Distance Education students may be found here.

UNCW@Onslow Graduates do have the option of picking up their cap and gown at the Coastal Carolina Bookstore on May 1, 2018.  There is no requirement to order in advance. Military Honor Cords, for UNCW@Onslow students, may be picked up at either the Camp Lejeune or Coastal offices any time prior to graduation.
