Academic Progress and Conferral

Academic Progress

It’s important to keep track of your academic progress to make sure you can graduate as expected. To do this we’ve created a Self-Assessment Tool (pdf) that helps you track what you have and haven’t completed, and gives important reminders of University policies you need to be aware of.

To complete the Self-Assessment Tool, you’ll need to review your information on UR Student. The Self-Assessment Instructions (pdf) will step you through this process, showing you where to find all of the information in UR Student and where to fill it out on the form.

Questions? We’ve pulled together a list of Frequently Asked Questions (pdf), to help answer them. If the answer to your question isn’t there, you can also contact the Office of the Registrar.

Students who are ready to graduate can review the following Degree Certification Calendar to find out when:

  • Their status in UR Student will change
  • Their degree will be voted on by the board
  • Degrees will officially be posted
  • Diplomas will be mailed
