Students are eligible for these certificates in the semester they graduate once they have completed five upper division Economics courses at CSUN. All Economics course grades (upper and lower division) earned at CSUN are used to calculate the CSUN Economics grade point average. The spring awards, given in May, are made based on grades in March, so Spring semester grades are not included. Students do not need to apply to be included in the Spring semester awards event. If you are graduating in Spring or Summer and become eligible for this award based on grades from the current spring semester, please submit an online application  after your grades from the spring semester and/or summer session post.

Apply for the CSUN Outstanding Graduating Seniors Award here.
