Confirm your major, concentration and minor information by selecting Yes from the drop down menu. If any of your plan information is incorrect, you will need to cancel the application process and work with your advisor to update your plan prior to applying for graduation. For example, if you have a concentration but it is not displayed, you should contact your advisor to declare the concentration prior to applying online.

Select the term that you will complete all degree requirements from the drop down menu. If you are trying to apply for a term prior to the terms available from the drop down menu, you will need to request a hard copy of the graduation application from graduation@csumb.edu. If you are trying to apply for a future term that is not available from the drop down menu, then the application period has not yet started and you will need to wait to submit your application until the period opens.
