Applying for Graduation

Students planning to graduate must submit an intent to graduate application through the UCDAccess student portal between the first day of registration and census for the term they intend to graduate. Students must contact their academic advisor to determine what requirements remain for graduation, as well as complete any paperwork required by their school/college, including the application for candidacy. Students will not be officially certified to graduate until a final audit of the student’s record has been completed approximately six weeks after the end of the term. After students have been certified to graduate, they must reapply with the Office of Admissions in order to return to the Denver Campus.

Commencement Ceremony

In early March, informational brochures will be mailed to students eligible to participate in the May spring-semester commencement. In early October, information regarding the December commencement will be mailed to students who graduated in the summer term or expect to graduate in the fall term. Information will be provided about registering for the ceremony, renting a cap and gown, and ordering diploma frames, announcements, and other memorabilia. This information is also available on the Commencement website.
