All students must apply to graduate through the Office of the Registrar.
Undergraduate Students: Apply to graduate one year before you anticipate completing all degree requirements. This allows ample time to plan out completion of any remaining graduation requirements. Late applications for graduation are accepted.
Graduate Students: Apply to graduate by February 15 (for spring or summer completion) or by October 1 (for fall or winter intersession completion). Late applications for graduation are accepted.
After Applying to Graduate
All correspondence regarding graduation status and official degree evaluation letters are sent to CCSU e-mail accounts. Questions about your degree evaluation or remaining program requirements should be discussed with a student’s academic advisor. Additional questions can be directed to the Office of the Registrar.
Participation in Commencement Ceremonies
Students who have applied to graduate and meet eligibility requirements will be invited to participate in the commencement ceremony. Details will be sent to their CCSU email accounts starting approximately two months prior to the ceremony. Participation in the commencement ceremony is optional.
