The Procedure for Graduate Clearance in the Library
A graduate is considered cleared by the library when he/she:

- Has returned all borrowed books;
- Has returned all borrowed library’s devices (headphones, charging cables for mobile devices, keys from lockers and rooms for individual work).
Such students are automatically marked as cleared in the system and they don't need to go anywhere else.
According to the procedure of VU graduates’ clearance, the fact of clearance will be marked in the system by a subject librarian of your faculty at least five working days prior to the date set for the graduation ceremony.
