Information for Graduating Seniors

Receiving a degree and participating in the end of the year commencement ceremony are two entirely different processes!  Don't make the mistake of doing one and not the other. 

•  Apply for graduation through the MyUCSC Student Portal by the deadline listed in the Academic Calendar for the term you plan to graduate.  This is what gets the process started for checking and verifying all your official graduation requirements, and is necessary for your degree to be awarded and your diploma issued.

•  Sign up to participate in the commencement ceremony in June.  This is the celebration of your achievement!
