Dates and Deadlines

Congratulations on getting close to finishing your graduate degree at the University of Idaho. Please note our dates and deadlines below to ensure you graduate on time.

In addition to meeting these deadlines, you will need to have an approved Major Professor, committee (for Thesis and Dissertation students), and study plan in VandalWeb. Doctoral students will also need to have submitted their Preliminary Examination and Advancement to Candidacy form. All students will also need to apply to graduate on VandalWeb.

If you are unsure that you have met these requirements, click on "Check Registration Status" in VandalWeb to ensure the information listed is correct. Please call 208-885-2647, or email cogs@uidaho.edu, if you have any questions or concerns, and we will be happy to help you. 

Please check with your department or college as they may have earlier deadlines than COGS.
