Once the online form is completed, students will receive e-mail communications from the College of Graduate Studies at various stages of the review process. Students can also check the status of their Intent to Graduate at any time by logging into myUCF Student Center - Intent to Graduate: Status.

Designated faculty advisers and staff within the program and college have access to review the Intent to Graduate forms for individual students within PeopleSoft. These designated individuals can also produce queries to find students within a particular college who have filed the form.
