Frequently Asked Questions
Q: When should I apply to graduate?
A: Students are expected to apply a year before their anticipated graduation date. For example, a student intending to complete all classes required for their degree in Spring 2016 should complete the application process no later than May 15, 2015. Students that anticipate completing all their required classes in Fall 2016 should complete the application process no later than December 15, 2015.
Students who apply one year in advance of their anticipated graduation may be reviewed before their last semester starts. If you are missing an individual course or are short total units, this information is useful in planning out your last semester. Applying a year in advance is the best way to assure you will complete the degree on time, as well as avoid a late fee.
