Final Grades and Degrees

Final Grades

Final grades for a term are due in the Registrar's Office on the third business day following final exam week. Grade PDF emails will be sent to students on the fourth day, and continue until all grades have been posted.

Students who receive a grade of NR in a course (the instructor did not yet submit a final grade) should address this directly with the instructor; the Registrar's Office has no information on why a grade was not submitted. Once the grade is assigned, the student will receive a subsequent PDF email. The student's GPA will be recalculated once an assigned grade has been submitted.

Degree Postings

The University has three degree dates: the end of the Spring term; August 31, and December 31. The Office of the Registrar works in tandem with the Associate Deans' Offices to ensure that a student's degree audit is met when evaluating the degree application. If DegreeWorks shows as met, the degree will be posted to the student's record. Please note that this process will begin in the month following the degree date and will continue until all degrees have been evaluated. The Office is unable to tell when an individual's degree will be posted; it is recommended that degree applicants check PROWL periodically.


A diploma will be ordered within 10 business days of the degree posting. A student should expect to receive the diploma (sent to the diploma mailing address) in approximately three weeks. Diplomas sent to an international address may be delayed in international delivery for which LMU assumes no liability.
