Please find a few important notes about degree certificates and graduation below if you plan on applying for your degree certificate in December.

Degree certificates and graduation

  • The application for the degree certificate should be sent in by 31.12 at the latest if you wish to participate in the graduation ceremony in March 2022 (4.3.2022), however we recommend that you send in your application no later than 22.12. Your application will not be processed by our staff until January if you send in your application between 23–31.12, meaning that you will receive your degree certificate in the beginning of February at the earliest. The date of your examination will of course be in December 2021, but due to the large amount of degree certificates we have to process the applications in the order they are sent in.
  • Students can apply once all credits needed to graduate are registered in Asta.
  • Students can apply as long as they have an active right to study. Students, whose study right ends on December 31, must apply by December 31. Please note that you have to be registered as present in order to apply for your degree certificate.
  • Remember to upload your thesis to Theseus and to attach your signed thesis evaluation to the application.
  • Please note that you can apply for your Valvira practice rights online only after you have received your degree certificate. Students apply for their Valvira practice right themselves.
  • More information about the application process can be found here.
