Apply for Graduation (Bachelor's Degree)

Meet with the academic advisor for your major to review your academic record and determine the term in which you will be completing your final degree requirements.

Submitting your application for graduation

Students may submit their graduation application online from their OASIS account. Please visit the OASIS page for instructions on this process. Students should contact for troubleshooting assistance if they are unable to submit their application online.

Note: After submitting a graduation application, students must contact the Office of the Registrar within two weeks of the application date to report any incorrect application information and avoid any additional fees.

What to expect after applying to graduate

After applying to graduate, the Graduation Team will review your student records and make any necessary updates to your Academic Requirements Report in OASIS. You will be notified via CSUMB email once the review is completed. Applying on time is advantageous as it may reduce the time in which your records are reviewed.

It is your responsibility to review your Academic Requirements Report. Any areas that do not show as completed will need to be fulfilled before your degree can be awarded. If you have any questions, please contact the Graduation Team or visit your advisor.

Making changes to major requirements after you have applied to graduate

If you need to complete an alternate course for your major or minor, please work with your academic advisor to submit a substitution request in OASIS. Once a substitution request is submitted, it may take up to 2 weeks to be processed in OASIS.

Changing your graduation date

If you are required to change your graduation date to a future term, you will need to submit a new graduation application with the appropriate processing fee online in OASIS to update your student record.

Final degree verification

After the end of the term in which you have applied to graduate, a final review of your academic record will be completed. Please keep in mind that all academic coursework must have been completed by the end of the assessment period of the term in which you have applied to graduate. If coursework was completed after the assessment period, you will need to change your graduation date to a future term.

If all degree requirements have been met, your degree will be awarded.

If all degree requirements have NOT been met, you will be notified via CSUMB email of any outstanding degree requirements with further instructions. It is recommended that you contact your Graduation Counselor with any questions upon receipt of this notice.
