Ashley Judd is now a graduate of the University of Kentucky.
UK spokesman Jay Blanton tells the Lexington Herald-Leader that the 39-year-old actress received a bachelor's degree in French.
Judd attended the university from 1986 to 1990, but left one course shy of graduation.
Blanton says student confidentiality laws prevent him from saying how she finally received her degree.
Judd told the newspaper in an interview last year that she would probably take a correspondence course to finish the one class necessary to get a degree.
When she left in 1990, online and correspondence courses weren't allowed to count toward graduation.
Her screen credits include "Kiss the Girls" and "De-Lovely."
