Preparing to Graduate

Undergraduate students must request a Graduation Requirement Check (Grad Check) at the Office of the Registrar (UH-171) when they have completed 90 semester units towards their degree. Graduate students must request a Grad Check at least one term prior to their expected graduation.  For more information, deadlines and fees, please visit the Office of The Registrar.   

To avoid late fees, the Grad Check should be filed by the established deadlines listed below. Graduate students may file the Grad Check by the deadlines below without being advanced to candidacy, but the Grad Check cannot be completed until the advancement is received in the Office of the Registrar.

Participation in commencement activities is voluntary and is separate from filing a grad check and completing all degree requirements. CSUSB has two commencement exercises, one in December and one in June.

May 2021

In order to provide commencement information to all eligible students, the deadline to file a graduation check and be included in the Commencement Program is the last working day in February.

Students who do not file a graduation check within the specified time period may still participate in commencement but will not have their names included in the Commencement Program. 

Master's Students

In order to participate in commencement, students completing a master's degree must file a grad check and meet the eligibility requirements specified by their program. For the specific requirements, students should consult their program coordinator.

Refiling a graduation check after registering on Webcomm may result in your name being omitted in the Commencement Program.
