Congratulations, graduates! CMCI's recognition ceremony is our college-wide graduation celebration.

If you are planning on graduating this May or August 2021, you must apply to graduate by April 1. Plan ahead and apply now. If you have any questions about your ability to graduate, please contact your academic advisor. 

Note: If you are planning to graduate in December 2021, but wish to be a part of our spring 2021 virtual ceremony, please apply for summer 2021. Otherwise, you will be recognized in the May 2022 ceremony.

April 1 is the final deadline to apply to graduate and to be included in CMCI’s virtual ceremony.

You must apply to graduate through Buff Portal for the semester in which you'll officially and successfully complete all requirements for the degree(s) and major(s) you're pursuing. Degrees are conferred at the end of the fall, spring and summer semesters. Learn more »

  • On BuffPortal, search for  “graduation” and click “apply to graduate.”
    • If you are pursuing more than one degree (not major), you will need to repeat this process for the second degree. 
  • Select your graduation term: spring or summer, whichever is appropriate. All August graduates will be recognized in May at the virtual ceremony.
  • After you apply and the advising office has accepted your application, you will be on the graduation roster. However, you will not automatically graduate. You are responsible for making sure your degree audit is correct and that all degree requirements are met. 

To be included in our CMCI virtual ceremony, you will need to submit additional information by April 1. Fill out this form to get your information in! You will need to log in with your identikey to access the form.

CMCI recommends students plan ahead and prepare for picture submissions by reserving graduation regalia as soon as possible.

All December 2020 graduates will be recognized as part of the CMCI Virtual Recognition Ceremony on May 6, 2021. If you'd like to have a photo included on the slide showing the degree you're earning, please note that the photo submission deadline is April 1.
