As a senior, you are getting closer to the finish line. You may apply for graduation once you have completed 90 units (including work-in-progress) or approximately one year prior to your planned graduation date. At least one semester of work must be completed in residence at Cal State Northridge before our office can complete a graduation evaluation. Your application for the Bachelor’s Degree and Diploma initiates the graduation process, participation in Commencement, and receipt of your diploma.
Complete the Application for Bachelor’s Degree and Diploma form through the section which indicates your primary Major(s)/Options(s) and your catalog year (available at the top right of your DPR).
If you have had an approved substitution/waiver which does not appear on your DPR, attach a copy of the form. If you have courses in progress that do not appear on the DPR, attach a copy of an unofficial transcript and the appropriate page from www.assist.org indicating course equivalence.
A separate DPR is required for each major as applicable.
Pick up your signed Application for Bachelor’s Degree and Diploma in JH 2113, attach a copy of your MAP (My Academic Planner), and submit to the Student Services Center in Bayramian Hall along with the diploma application fee.
