To apply for graduation, log-in to your Student Center in MyCSUSM, and locate the Apply for Graduation field and follow the prompts for the appropriate graduation term. Undergraduate students must have a minimum of 85 semester units before they can apply. Students must be fully classified in the major before applying for graduation (no
pre-major status). Students must apply to graduate by the deadlines below. If you
do not apply by the deadline, your name will not be printed in the Commencement program.
|Degree Level||Fall 2020 Deadline||Spring 2021 Deadline||Summer 2021 Deadline|
|Undergraduate Student (Bachelors)||November 1, 2020||March 15, 2021||March 15, 2021|
|Graduate Student (Masters)||November 1, 2020||March 15, 2021||March 15, 2021|
Note: For undergraduate students who have not completed 85 units, your graduation application will be cancelled. If you apply to graduate, this not automatically registers you for Commencement. If you apply after the noted graduation application deadlines, the following may occur:
- You may not be notified about Commencement.
- You may not receive a link to register for Commencement.
- Your name may not be printed in the Commencement Program.
