Congratulations Graduates! Please be sure to read all of this important information regarding your final semester at Leeds and how to prepare for the ceremonies. Contact your advisor if you have any questions.

Applying for Graduation

You must apply for graduation online through MyCUInfo. Once you have over 75 completed hours the button will appear in the portal in the student tab. We recommend that you apply once the button appears; a year prior to graduation is not too early, and you should do it at least a semester before you plan to graduate. Please note that you can make changes to your graduation date if some unforeseen circumstance occurs. If you do not apply online, we will not know your intentions and therefore you will not graduate.

December graduation
Students intending to walk in December will need to apply online by November 17 to be included in the Leeds Commencement Program. Students who apply after this date may still participate in the ceremony, but their name will not be in the program.

Spring graduation
Summer AND Spring graduates are included in all spring recognition ceremony activities. Students intending to walk in May will need to apply online by April 1 to be included in the University Commencement Program. Students who apply after this date may still participate in the ceremony, but their name will not be in the program.

Final Semester Grades

Determination of your graduating semester is based on the last semester in which final credits are recorded. Incomplete grades, "I", may prevent graduation.

Correspondence/on-line courses, Incompletes, or transfer credits MUST be recorded with a final grade/credits on the Student Information System (Campus Solutions) by the following dates:

  • May graduation: May 1
  • August graduation: August 1
  • December graduation: December 1

Grades recorded or credits transferred in after the above dates will remove you from the graduation list for that term. It is your responsibility to reapply for graduation through MyCUInfo and notify our office when you have completed any coursework or when you have credit transfer in.

Failure to reapply and notify our office may result in delay of your graduation.

You must have 120 hours passed and applied towards degree in order to graduate.

  • A 2.0 cumulative GPA is required for graduation.
  • A 2.0 Business GPA is required for graduation.
  • A 2.0 GPA in your Area of Emphasis is required for graduation.

Failure to meet these minimum standards will result in your name being removed from the graduation list.

Honors

Students who complete 60 semester hours or more at CU-Boulder and who achieve a cumulative University of Colorado GPA within the ranges listed below will be awarded honors as follows:

  • With Distinction: 3.75 to 3.899
  • With High Distinction: 3.90 to 4.00

Honors Medallions must be picked up in the Office of Undergraduate Student Services the two weeks prior to the graduation ceremony.

Changing Your Graduation Date

If you decide to postpone your graduation, please notify an advisor. Your name will not appear on a Commencement list and we will not know that you want to graduate unless you contact the Office of Undergraduate Student Services and inform us that you are ready.

Diplomas & Transcripts

Diplomas are mailed approximately TEN weeks after Commencement to your permanent address. For information regarding diplomas, contact the Registrar's Office, 303.492.7205. Completion of your degree will begin showing on your transcripts approximately SIX weeks after Commencement.

Your degree is a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. We now allow two Areas of Emphasis; therefore, your transcript will reflect completion of two Areas of Emphasis, only if you have notified our office and officially declared both areas.
