As you near the completion of your degree (i.e. completion of 100 semester hours for baccalaureate degree candidates), you must file a Request for Graduation Evaluation located in the MyYSU Portal under the "Access My Student Information" tab. This will initiate a graduation evaluation of your transcript to determine your remaining degree requirements. Visit the CCAC Dean's office for more information or if you require assistance.

In order to actually graduate, an Application for Graduation must be filed with the Office of Student Accounts by the deadline indicated in the schedule of classes in the Important Dates section (usually within the first two weeks of the semester after which you plan to graduate). Students can file an Application for Graduation in the MyYSU Portal under the "Student Records" tab.

It is your responsibility to make certain that all degree requirements are complete. See your advisor and the Undergraduate Bulletin for more information.
