Students should meet with their academic advisor to discuss progress towards degree requirements, and then if appropriate, apply for graduation via the online Student Center according to the timelines posted on the Registrar's website.
May and August baccalaureate, master, and doctoral candidates participate in the May Engineering Graduation Recognition Ceremony. December baccalaureate, master, and doctoral candidates participate in the December Engineering Graduation Recognition Ceremony. All degree candidates are encouraged to participate in the Boulder Campus Commencement. More information about academic regalia used for these various ceremonies, and suggestions for celebrating this special milestone, may be found on the Commencement web site.
Undergraduate students in the college are eligible for two honors designations at graduation:
