Only those students who pass the final degree audit on the first attempt (the day before the first ceremony) will receive diplomas at commencement.
Grades for degree candidates will be available by web after 10 p.m. the day before the first ceremony.
To access grades and graduation clearance checks go to https://howdy.tamu.edu.
All degree candidates will be allowed to participate in commencement regardless of whether or not they pass the final audit the day before the ceremonies.
Candidates who are not certified for graduation will not receive diplomas at commencement.
Due to the short time remaining on the day of the ceremonies, to finalize honors and stack diplomas, no one will be available to assist with graduation
problems until the following Monday.
Students may come to the General Services Complex Suite 1501 and discuss problems. Telephone inquiries can be made beginning a 8 a.m. on that Monday by calling (979) 845-1089.
In addition to diplomas being withheld at commencement for candidates who do not pass the final degree audit, diplomas are also withheld from graduates who have failed to settle all financial obligations with the University in accordance with University and State rules.
Students may review their account balance online to determine if there are any unsettled obligations that may prevent receiving their diplomas in the commencement ceremonies.
