Graduation is defined as the act of receiving a degree or diploma. CU-Boulder graduates students in fall, spring and summer.
To apply for graduation, log in to MyCUInfo, go to your Academics / Schedule tab, scroll to the bottom and click Apply for Graduation.
Only students completing a degree program (i.e., not a stand-alone certificate or licensure program) may apply for graduation.
You must be an active student to apply; contact your academic advisor if you have been on leave from the university.
If you're pursuing a dual degree, you must submit a separate application for each degree program. In the Graduation Intention dropdown, select Complete if you'll complete the displayed major in your expected graduation term; select Defer if you plan to complete it in a future term.
On the Confirm Diploma Name and Address Information page, carefully review, revise and approve your name and address.
Name: This is exactly how your name will appear on your diploma. Review spelling, accent marks, appearance of middle name, etc.
Address: When your diploma is mailed approximately eight weeks after commencement, it will be sent to the displayed address. Make sure it is the address where you want your diploma delivered. NOTE: The post office does not forward diplomas if your address changes.
To check your application status, click Apply for Graduation, choose your graduation term and program, and click Application Status.
If your application is denied, contact your advisor for more information. If your application is accepted, you must complete your graduation requirements by the end of your expected graduation term for your degree to be conferred.
If it is necessary to update your graduation information, click Apply for Graduation and choose your graduation term and program to access the Graduation Application Summary page. Update your application information, diploma name, delivery address or cancel your application.
Commencement ceremonies are held every May and December. Students who graduate in the summer may participate in either the May or December ceremony. Visit the Commencement website for details about the ceremonies.
