Graduation Procedures

All graduates must complete the following steps:

  • Remember to apply for graduation with the Registrar's Office.
  • Check any holds (examples below) you may have on your account because a diploma cannot be issued unless all financial obligations are cleared.

Payment of Bills

Students with unpaid charges may graduate, but will not receive diplomas, nor transcripts made available until charges are paid. If you have a balance, you will receive a blank diploma with an insert indicating the need to see the Business Office regarding your unmet financial obligations. All amounts due must be paid in full before diplomas and transcripts are released. If you have any questions, please contact the UMFK Business Office at: (207) 834-8650.

Exit Interviews

All graduating students with outstanding loans will be asked by letter at the beginning of April to complete an Exit Counseling session online. This interview is required before diplomas are released. If you have any questions, please contact the UMFK Student Financial Aid Office.

Return of Library Materials

Graduating students should return borrowed library materials prior to commencement, and resolve outstanding issues with respect to fines and fees owed. Failure to do so may result in diplomas being withheld. If you have any questions, please contact the UMFK Blake Library at: (207) 834-7526.
