Application for Graduation

Central Connecticut State University confers degrees and certificates four times during the academic year: May, August, December, and January.

A graduating student must file an Application for Graduation with the Office of Registrar one year prior to graduation. The form may be obtained at the Registrar's Website. Those expecting to complete degree requirements in May or August must file by May 1, and those completing in December or January must file by December 1 of the previous year.

The Office of the Registrar reviews a student’s graduation evaluation and notifies them of any remaining program requirements. After a student has completed all requirements their degree or certificate will be conferred in the term associated with the completion of their last program requirement(s).

Central Connecticut State University reserves the right to confer a student’s degree or certificate upon completion of all program requirements if an application for graduation is not submitted. This is necessary to ensure institutional compliance with applicable federal regulations.
