Degree Candidates

Degree candidates must achieve financial and academic requirements in order to be eligible for graduation related privileges, including receiving their diploma, having their degree conferred, and obtaining their official transcript(s).

Achieving financial requirements refers to fulfilling current financial obligations to the University and completing Exit Counseling for any federal loans (at studentloans.gov) or Perkins Loans (at heartland.ecsi.net). SFS notifies degree candidates of any outstanding financial obligations several times well in advance of Final Exercises and/or degree conferral. Students may check their student financial account at any time by logging in to SIS.

For information regarding the specific academic requirements for your program, please see your school advisor or registrar. For general requirements related to graduation and diplomas, please refer to UREG’s policies.
