Completing the Major:  Graduating

Have you completed all the requirements for your major?
Students are encouraged to review their academic record and use the major checklist to verify they have satisfied their major requirements prior to applying to graduate.

Applying to Graduate
Students must apply to graduate online through their MyUCSC portal.  For instructions, see the Registrar's Apply to Graduate.

NOTE: Be sure to apply for graduation for the quarter in which you will actually be finishing all your degree requirements.

Official Graduation vs Ceremonial Graduation
You have not officially graduated until you have successfully completed all the requirements necessary to have your degree conferred. [Your MyUCSC portal will indicate your degree status, instructions to verify your degree has been conferred]  Students are allowed "to walk" in the graduation ceremony prior to having graduated.  For information about your graduation ceremony, talk to your college. 

University Extension Open Campus
Students who have only 5-units or less remaining to graduate, may enroll in their last course at a reduced tuition rate through University Extension's Open Campus.
