Graduation Ceremony

Graduation Information

Students fulfilling requirements for a UAB master's or doctoral degree must submit an "Application for Graduation" to their major departments by the application deadline stated on the Graduate School Deadline Dates website.

The doctoral degree is granted in recognition of (1) scholarly proficiency and (2) distinctive achievement in a specific field of an academic discipline. The first component is demonstrated by successful completion of advanced coursework (of both a didactic and an unstructured nature) and by adequate performance on the comprehensive examination. Traditionally, the student demonstrates the second component by independently performing original research.

Graduation Checklist

Your college experience doesn’t start and end with lectures, reports, or exams.  We want our students to get involved on campus and recognize the importance of out of class opportunities in order to receive the total college experience.  From residence life, community service, athletics, student organizations, and much more, UAB has something for everyone to enhance their undergraduate or graduate education.


Parking Permit

If you plan to park a car (or motorcycle, or scooter) on campus, you’ll need to register with UAB Parking and Transportation Services to get your permit.Fill out your forms, pay your fee, and get your parking tag—simple as that. Your tag will permit you to park in a specific lot—park without a permit, or park in the wrong lot, and you’ll get fined. Visit UAB Parking and Transportation Services for all of the rules and advantages to parking on campus.



For immediate notification of emergencies, all students should sign up with UAB's B-ALERT system, which is used to communicate to the entire campus all at the same time. You can choose which method of communication suits you best—voice call, SMS text message, or e-mail—or use any combination of the three.
