Notifying the University of Intent to Graduate
All students are required to notify the University of their intended graduation term to ensure that all requirements have been met.
Students must contact the Registrar's Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or (970) 491-7159 prior to their graduation term to confirm their plans to complete their degree. By the first week of their graduation term, a Contract for Completion of Major/Minor outlining all remaining requirements will be completed by the student's advisor.
Students applying for the first time to graduate must complete the Application for Graduation (GS Form 25) and submit it to the Graduate School. Students who applied to graduate in a previous term, and did not graduate, are required to file a Reapplication for Graduation and register for Continuous Registration.
Further information about graduation deadline dates and forms is available at the Graduate School.
Students graduating from degree programs offered through Colorado State University Online are welcome and encouraged to walk in the on-campus graduation ceremony.
