Step 3. View your Wolf Watch degree audit to ensure completion of all degree requirements. You will access this through the MyUWG Portal. Students should then make an appointment with their academic advisor. We STRONGLY recommend students review their progress on a regular basis with their advisor. In addition, students should carefully read and fully understand the Graduation Policy Rules prior to applying for graduation.

Step 4. Confirm that course substitution or waiver memos have been submitted to the Registrar’s Office via Wolf Watch.

Step 5. A tenative list of potential graduation candidates will be available shortly before mid-term.  This list is not confirmation that those included are meeting all degree requirements.  Final grades have not been submitted for spring 2015 and student graduation is contingent upon the grades recorded.  This list is a representation of students that have applied for graduation and are possible graduation candidates.  Any discrepancies in the information listed should be reported immediately to graduation@westga.edu from your myUWG email account.

Step 6. Pay all fees owed to the University. This includes parking tickets, obligations to the library, or any other departmental fees.
