After Graduation

Awarding of Degrees

Following the commencement ceremony and/or the last day of your graduation term several checks occur before you are officially graduated from the University.

  • Once grades are posted, the Office of the Registrar completes a final review of each graduating student's general education requirements and other degree requirements
  • After this is complete, the Office of the Registrar will confer your degree.
  • If there are concerns with your degree requirements you will be notified.

This process may take up to six weeks to complete. Once conferred, your degree will appear on your unofficial transcript within MyHusky and on your official transcripts.

Teacher Certification

Graduates may contact Amy Eitzen, teacher certification coordinator, for assistance with the online application process. Anticipated processing time for applications on campus is two weeks and six to eight weeks in Harrisburg. For more on certification and required testing:


Requests for Official Transcripts must be processed from your MyHusky account, under other academic, choose "Transcript: Request Official." There is no fee for this service and all transcripts must be mailed.

Student Voter Registration Cancellation
