Preparing to Graduate

Undergraduate students must file a Graduation Requirement Check (Grad Check) with the Office of the Registrar when they have completed 90-semester units towards their degree. This service is now available online through your MyCoyote Student Center. Graduate students must request a Grad Check at least one term prior to their expected graduation.

For more information regarding the online Graduation Check process, please visit the Office of the Registrar Graduation Requirement Check website. 

Please Note: Grad students in a Master's program may file the Grad Check only once their approved Advancement to Candidacy has been received by 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 May.

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

Commencement Spring 2024

Spring 2024 and Summer 2024 candidates are eligible to participate in the Commencement exercises. 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 September.

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.
