*The Application to Graduate is not the same as Convocation Ceremony Registration

**The Conferral Date is the date when your credential (diploma or certificate) is officially confirmed and communicated to you. This is the official date used for all official graduation documents issued by the College. This is not the date on which you will receive your official documents.

Application to Graduate

How do I find out more about my eligibility or program requirements?

If you have any questions about whether you are in your final term, contact the Academic Advising services for your School or program.

What if I need to take more classes or you want to register in options like work experience?

You need to have finished all your classes in order to graduate. The optional work experience for the Chiu School of Business and School of Creative Technologies is considered a class and must be completed before you graduate.

What happens if I miss the deadline?

The Application to Graduate closure period allows us to process the Applications to Graduate and confirm eligibility to graduate.  Once we begin accepting Applications to Graduate again, you can submit and be included in the next round of graduations.

Graduations are processed six times a year, and you would be considered as a part of the next group. 

You will receive an auto-reply email when you submit your Application to Graduate.

We will send you a confirmation email within four weeks to let you know that your Application to Graduate has been accepted. This email will not be the same as the auto-reply email. In order for us to process and accept your Application to Graduate, it must be complete and must contain accurate information. We encourage you to submit your Application to Graduate as soon as possible in the final term of your program.

If we cannot process your Application to Graduate, we will let you know as soon as possible.

Convocation is the ceremony at which we celebrate the accomplishments of you, our graduates.

You must submit an Application to Graduate in order to receive information on how to register for convocation.

Convocation registration is optional. You are not required to attend convocation in order to receive your parchment, or to graduate.
