Graduation Application Priority Filing Deadlines
Apply for graduation to the term in which you will complete all degree requirements and coursework. Graduation applications and $50.00 fee must be received by the published deadline.
How to Apply for Graduation
Fill out the Application for Degree and Diploma and submit it to the Student Business Services Office with your payment. Once your application has been processed, your status on your CI Academic Requirements Report (CARR) will change from "Not Applied" to "Applied".
Participating in the Commencement Ceremony ("walking") is separate from graduation. Review the Commencement website for more information.
What happens after Commencement?
Degree processing begins two weeks after grades post and takes 8-10 weeks to confer degrees. If you have met all degree requirements, an e-mail will be sent to your dolphin address and a diploma will be ordered. Be sure that your mailing address is up to date in CI Records. Diplomas are mailed from a separate company and will take approximately one month to arrive. If you have not met all degree requirements, an e-mail will be sent to your dolphin address notifying you that you still have requirements to fulfill.
