Completing Your Studies

After you have earned all the re­quired cred­its in your de­gree pro­gram and all the aca­demic re­quire­ments for com­ple­tion of your pro­gram are prop­erly dis­played in the LPIS sys­tem and/or on your tran­script, please go to the WU on­line ser­vices for stu­dents to re­port the com­ple­tion of your stud­ies. Please note that pro­cessing your gradu­ation doc­u­ments may take up to four weeks (from the time you re­port the com­ple­tion of your stud­ies).

In Case of Prob­lems

Please Note

Please do not re­quest your gradu­ation doc­u­ments for the Bach­elor’s Pro­gram in Busi­ness, Eco­nom­ics and So­cial Sciences until you have suc­cess­fully passed all courses and exams re­quired for all ma­jors you in­tend to com­plete. After re­port­ing the com­ple­tion of your stud­ies, it will not be possible for you to be re­ad­mit­ted to the pro­gram to com­plete an ad­di­tional ma­jor.

You will be no­ti­fied by email as soon as your gradu­ation doc­u­ments (cer­ti­fic­ate, of­fi­cial no­ti­fic­a­tion, dip­loma sup­ple­ment, and an­nexes to the dip­loma) are avail­able for pick­-up in the Study Ser­vice Center.

Please bring the fol­low­ing when you re­port to col­lect your gradu­ation doc­u­ments:

  • Your WU stu­dent ID or an­other of­fi­cial photo ID

  • Con­firm­a­tion that you have com­pleted the UStat 2 form on time spent abroad dur­ing your stud­ies (either in di­gital form or as a print-out). This form must be com­pleted even if you did not spend any time abroad dur­ing your de­gree pro­gram. If you need a sub­sti­tute code for filling out the form, please con­tact the Ex­am­in­a­tions Of­fice.

  • Please fill out the WU gradu­ate sur­vey and print the last page of the ques­tion­naire as con­firm­a­tion that you have com­pleted it. Bring proof of com­ple­tion of the sur­vey with you when you come to pick up your gradu­ation doc­u­ments. Al­tern­at­ively, you can also present a screen­shot.

You can also ap­point an­other per­son to col­lect your gradu­ation doc­u­ments for you and sub­mit your re­gis­tra­tion for a gradu­ation ce­re­mony. You will need to provide this per­son with a power of at­tor­ney.
