Receiving Your Degree

You must declare your intent to graduate with the College of Engineering. This is normally done at the same time you register for your final semester of classes through the student registration system. If you do not complete this step, your name will not appear on the pending degree list, you will not receive information regarding the Graduation Ceremonies, and the date of your degree award and diploma could be delayed.

  • If you are a Bachelor of Science student and you have not declared your intent to graduate by the tenth day of class of the semester you plan to graduate, you must contact the Engineering Undergraduate Programs Office at engineering@illinois.edu or 217-333-2280.
  • If you are a graduate student, please contact your department.
