Application for Graduation

A graduate student must apply for graduation by submitting to the Graduate School Office an Application for Graduation (GS Form 25). (Deadlines are available on the Graduate School website.) For students in combined bachelor’s/master’s degree programs (Integrated Degree Program (IDP) Admissions), an application for graduation from the Graduate School must be either contemporaneous or subsequent to filing an application for receiving the bachelor’s degree. Students must be registered during the semester they complete their degree requirements as specified under Graduate Enrollment Requirement above.

Clearance for Graduation

Departmental requirements (i.e., language requirement, preparation of required papers for publication, return of keys and equipment, cleaning up office and laboratory areas) and discrepancies in grades for graduation term must be completed by the end of the term.

Failure to meet all requirements during the term requested on GS Form 25 will necessitate reapplication for graduation (online). Diplomas will be mailed approximately six to eight weeks after the end of the graduation term to the mailing address on file with CSU.
