Applying for Graduation


Prospective graduates must file a “Request for Graduation” via CUNYfirst or at the Registrar’s Office prior to the end of the tenth week of the semester in which the student intends to graduate; filing dates are posted each semester and are also printed in the Academic Calendar.
The application triggers a review of the student’s academic record to determine whether it is possible for the student to complete degree requirements by the end of that term or session.

Only after the “Request for Graduation” action has been filed via CUNYfirst can the Registrar’s Office begin processing the necessary information for final certification of graduation.
