Graduation Pending simply refers to the decision made collectively by your academic department and the Graduation department that you are eligible to graduate.
Since we cannot officially confer degrees prior to the three conferral dates in an academic calendar year, the Graduation department will place a Graduation Pending status on your record. Please be aware that Graduation Pending is only granted for students who have fully met the requirements of their academic program, including having all final grades posted. Once the date of official graduation arrives, the Graduation department will update your status to Degree Conferred.
