Graduation Application Priority Filing Deadlines

Apply for graduation for the term in which you will complete all degree requirements and coursework.

Seniors who apply to graduate by the deadlines below, and have 18 units or less to complete their degree, will receive enrollment priority for their final, regular semester.  Graduate (Master's) students who apply by these deadlines will also receive enrollment priority.  Students may continue to submit their Graduation Application after the priority filing deadlines but will not be eligible for a priority enrollment appointment.

See our Enrollment Appointment Distribution webpage for more information.

Please Note: Students in the Credential program do not apply to graduate, as they are not obtaining a degree from the University, but rather a Credential from the State of California.
