San Antonio Graduation


Application Forms

We have had a marked increase in students completing the wrong Application for Graduation form.  Before completing the application, please, verify your degree program with your degree plan or unofficial transcript.

Please note that we do not offer "BA," "BS," or "AA" degrees at the San Antonio campus.

Students are required to complete the correct application before their file will be processed for graduation.

Wayland E-mail

Do you use your Wayland-issued e-mail account?  If you don't, you are missing out on lots of important information.  It is a great way to disseminate information among hundreds of potential graduates (you may have a message waiting for you now).  And recent revisions to federal privacy laws severely restrict the amount and type of information Wayland employees can release over the phone and to any other personal e-mail address.  Need help setting up your e-mail account?  Click here or log into Student Services to view a step-by-step video tutorial.
