GRADUATION

 

Students should apply for graduation after they have completed 90 units (including work-in-progress). Students who have applied for graduation will have priority registration during their final semester at CSUN.

If your application is late, a $10 late fee will be assessed. Applying late may also prevent you from receiving graduating senior priority registration during your last semester. If you do not get priority registration for your last semester, the Department of Kinesiology cannot guarantee your enrollment in the courses you need to graduate on time.

Please refer to the Kinesiology Graduation Application Process form below for detailed application instructions specific to the Department of Kinesiology.
