It's almost time for graduation!

Here are necessary steps graduate students should take to prepare for commencement:

  • Apply online via MyCSU (Student Page, Student Records).
  • Contact your program director to review your Degree Works or degree progress sheet to verify that all requirements have been met.
  • Resolve any “incomplete” grades for courses to be used to meet degree requirements, unless it's a continuing sequence course. Those degree progress sheets then go to the Registrar's Office.

More important information graduate students should know:

  • Clear up any fines or holds on your account with the Bursar's Office before graduation.
  • If you have used federal student aid to help finance your education, you will be required to complete exit counseling with Financial Aid.
  • Only diploma covers will be handed out at commencement. Diplomas will be mailed about six weeks later.
  • Summer graduates participate in fall commencement.
