Apply to Graduate (Graduate Students)

In order to be awarded a degree or certificate, you must apply to graduate online via MyCSULB Student Center. Applying for graduation is the only way to officially graduate from CSULB. Participating in your college commencement ceremony does not indicate you have received a degree or certificate. The following FAQ gives you a step-by-step guide to applying to graduate and what to expect in the process until you receive your diploma or certificate.  
 
Note: If you are a credential student, public school teaching and service credentials in the State of California are regulated by the State Legislature and administered by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC). Therefore, your credential will be awarded by the CCTC.
