Graduation Audit Information
Important Information You Should Know Before Applying For Graduation:
There are three graduation terms a year, January 31st, June 15th, and August 31st.
The deadlines to apply for graduation are March 1 st for the spring and the summer term and October 1 st for the fall term.
To apply for graduation you must have completed a minimum of 34 credits to apply for an associate degree; 94 credits must be completed to apply for baccalaureate degrees, and 0-15 credits based on the total number of credits required for the Master's degree. Applicants who have not completed the minimum credits required to apply for graduation will be automatically denied without further review.
If your application has been audited and you have been denied graduation for the requested term, YOU MUST REAPPLY for graduation to be considered for the following semester.
Your name will not appear in the Commencement Program, newspaper, or any other printed or electronic media if you have completed a "Request to Prevent Disclosure of Directory Information."
To remove the privacy notice and allow your name to be published, you must notify the Office of the Registrar in writing no later than March 16.
We recommend that all students consult the College of Staten Island Catalog and seek academic and/or departmental advisement prior to applying for graduation to ensure that their degree requirements are met by the time of graduation. Upon successful completion of all outstanding course work and a final review of the degree requirements, you will be awarded your degree.
