Are You Ready to Graduate?

Steps to the Commencement Ceremony

    • For Degrees: See a counselor. A counselor will review your academic record to determine if you have completed or are about to complete your requirements for a degree. If you have over 60 units but have still not declared a major, do so in WebSMART. You may have enough units for a degree. If you finished your degree requirements last fall, you are still eligible for graduation.

    • You must complete a graduation application in order to graduate. Make an appointment to see your counselor. See the Counseling website for more details.

    • Your academic record will be assessed by the Admissions and Records Office. It will list completed and remaining courses for your degree and/or certificate requirements. If you are eligible to graduate you will receive an Invitation to Commencement from the Center for Student Life and Leadership Development.
