You can use myWCU to:
At least 30 of your last 60 credits must be taken at WCU. At least 50% of the major and at least 50% of the minor must be taken at WCU. The DPR does not calculate residency requirements, so they must be checked manually.
Following the commencement ceremony and/or the last day of your graduation term several checks occur before you are officially graduated from the University.
This process may take up to 6 weeks to complete. Once conferred, your degree will appear on your unofficial transcript within myWCU and on your official transcripts. It takes another 4-6 weeks for students to receive their West Chester University diploma.
Clear any holds on your record. You will not receive a diploma until all holds are cleared.
Graduation honors are awarded as follows, based on your final transcript:
The honors list for Commencement is based on the cumulative GPA from the next-to-last semester before a student graduates.
Students who do not earn honors until the end of their final semester will have the honors recorded on their diplomas and final transcripts, where all honors are recorded.
If you received a Federal Student Loan as part of your financial aid package, you are required to complete an Exit Interview before you graduate.
Financial Aid will clear your Financial Aid alert on myWCU typically within 24-72 hours of you completing your Exit Counseling.
