Application for Graduation Deadline

Date: Fri, Mar 22, 2019
Time: All Day

The Application for Graduation for all Winter 2019, Spring 2019, and Summer 2019 graduates must be submitted to the Graduate Education Office by 3/22/19.

When submitting the form, you must specify the quarter and year in which all degree requirements (including the Master’s thesis, project, or exam) will be completed. Please keep in mind that the Application for Graduation must be perfectly accurate; it can only be submitted once

If you are unsure if you previously completed your Application for Graduation, please follow these steps:

STEP 1.) Check your DocuSign “Completed” forms by accessing your DocuSign profile through your My Cal Poly Portal. The DocuSign application will appear under “My Apps” on the left side of your Portal. If you have already completed your Application for Graduation, you will be able to view your form through DocuSign.

STEP 2.) To verify that you declared the correct anticipated graduation date, please review your Poly Profile (found on the “Academics” tab of your My Cal Poly Portal). If you previously submitted your Application for Graduation, your anticipated graduation date will appear on your Poly Profile (under your Career Program Plan).

STEP 3.) If you have NOT yet completed an Application for Graduation, you will need to complete your paperwork as soon as possible by visiting the Graduation Education website: http://grad/checklist-forms/steps-to-graduation.html

STEP 4.) IF YOU ALREADY COMPLETED THE FORM, DO NOT SUBMIT A SECOND APPLICATION FOR GRADUATION. Submitting more than one form can create confusion and may negatively impact your anticipated graduation date/participation in Commencement.

STEP 5.) If you previously submitted an Application for Graduation but need to update your graduation date for whatever reason, please speak directly with our office. We will be able to explain your next steps.

All Winter 2019 graduates should have already submitted their paperwork. However, we are still able to accept the form at this point.

All Spring 2019 and Summer 2019 graduates will need to ensure that their paperwork is completed this quarter in order to guarantee participation in the Spring 2019 Commencement Ceremony.

Once you have reviewed and completed the steps outlined above, please feel free to contact the Graduate Education Office to verify that they have received and processed your Application for Graduation.
