To file for graduation, you can apply via your Self-Service area in CUNYfirst. Please note that all requirements must be met before you can be graduated. If you fail to meet your requirements in the semester in which you filed for graduation, you must re-file for graduation in the semester in which you expect to fulfill all requirements. Failure to do by the posted deadlines so could impact your date of graduation.
Students who anticipate completing their degree requirements in the Summer 2015 semester (September 1, 2015 graduation date) must file for graduation by May 15, 2015.

Please be aware that the degree audit process is a very detailed one and does not occur instantaneously. You will receive a degree audit letter in the mail stating what, if any, degree requirements are outstanding for your degree once the audit has been performed (after you have filed for graduation). Your patience with this process is greatly appreciated.
If you have any questions that are not answered here, including questions about your Degree Works report (available via the CUNY Portal), please e-mail us.
Please review this step sheet for help with filing online.
