When can you request graduation?

Check the following before requesting graduation

Request for graduation can be sent in Sisu in two ways depending on your study attainments

1. You have completed the last study attainment needed for your degree

You can submit a request for graduation on Sisu immediately after completing your last study attainment (for example a thesis or a maturity essay). 

Submit the request by going to the degree programme info sheet of the programme you have completed. To go to the info sheet, go to Structure of studies and click on the code of your degree programme. This will take you to the info sheet. The Graduation section contains a Request for graduation button. Start by reading Aalto University’s graduation instructions.

If you have completed all studies included in your degree and the status of your HOPS is "parts completed", the Structure of studies banner at the top of the page will display a green banner stating that you can submit a request for graduation. In this case, you can apply for graduation through the selection assistant by clicking on the link that says "Request for graduation"
