Spring 2016 degree awarding information

Spring 2016 final grades post Monday, May 16th. Graduate School staff will be working as quickly as possible to award the 1,216 pending degrees and certificates for spring by July 1st. We award in first come, first served order as all our graduates are needing their degrees conferred for employment or further graduate study.

Once a degree is awarded, the student can get a .pdf Letter of Completion through their Graduate Student Degree Menu in HokieSpa.

Transcripts can be ordered now through the Registrar’s Office webpage and marked as “Degree Completion” hold. The transcript will print the business day after the degree is awarded. http://www.registrar.vt.edu/academic_records/transcripts/index.html

Diplomas will be ordered weekly throughout the entire summer. It takes approximately 10 business days for the diplomas to be printed and shipped after the order date. The diplomas ship directly to the student from the diploma company in Utah.
