Graduation & Commencement


You are eligible to graduate at the end of the term in which you have officially and successfully completed all of the requirements for the degree(s) and major(s) you are pursuing. You must apply to graduate for the term in which you complete your degree requirements. Students graduate and degrees are conferred at the end of the fall, spring or summer semesters. 

Read through these instructions on how to apply for graduation in MyCUInfo


Commencement ceremonies are held at the end of spring semester (May) for students who are projected to have completed all degree requirements for graduation in a given semester. Confirmation of degree completion does not take place until official grades are posted and colleges/schools/programs have verified satisfactory completion of requirements. Students should regularly track their degree progress by viewing the degree audit in MyCUInfo.

Students who graduate in summer may participate in the May ceremony. Visit the Commencement website for details.


A diploma is mailed to every new graduate approximately eight weeks after their commencement ceremony. If you did not enter a Diploma Address in MyCUInfo (see step 8 in Apply for Graduation), your diploma will be mailed to your Home Address.
