Students who anticipate completing their degrees in the Spring 2013 semester (June 1, 2013 graduation date) must file for graduation by March 15, 2013. Failure to do so could impact your date of graduation and ability to participate in the 2013 Commencement ceremony.
To file for graduation, you can fill out a diploma information form in the Enrollment Services Center in the lobby of the West Quad Building. They are open Monday-Thursday 9 AM-8 PM and Friday from 9 AM-5 PM.
You can also file for graduation online via WebSIMS. WebSIMS can be accessed via the Brooklyn College Web Central portal (https://portal.brooklyn.cuny.edu), under the Shortcuts section on the Home tab. Once you have signed into WebSIMS, “File for Graduation” is the last option on the menu. Please note that students who have previously filed for graduation are not able to re-file via WebSIMS; they must instead re-file in person in the Enrollment Services Center.
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. Your patience with this process is greatly appreciated.
Commencement exercises for the graduating classes of September 1, 2012; February 1, 2013; and June 1, 2013 will be held in late May. The Master’s Commencement exercises take place on Wednesday, May 29. The Baccalaureate Commencement exercises take place on Thursday, May 30. More information will be sent out to students who are eligible to participate in the ceremonies after Spring Break.
