Filing for Graduation

Graduation Applications are accepted ONLINE via CUNYfirst.

Eligible students will be sent an email invitation via their LC.CUNY.EDU email with instructions on How to Apply  and How to View Application Status.

A student who expects to graduate at the end of a semester must file an application for graduation by the deadline which is posted on the corresponding Academic Calendar. Prior to applying for graduation, kindly visit an Academic and Department Advisor to ensure all requirements have been met. Any student who does not meet the requirements to graduate must cancel their graduation. Students may re-file in any subsequent semester in which graduation is anticipated.

Graduation Procedure  

Any incomplete grades (INC) on the graduate student's transcript must be resolved prior to the date of graduation. To resolve incomplete grades, students must either complete and hand in the missing work or, if the courses in question are not required for the degree, indicate to the Office of the Registrar that they do not intend to complete the work. Students who choose not to make up the missing work are required to sign a statement in the Registrar's Office indicating their awareness that INC grades remaining on the transcript can never be changed to letter grades.

This policy applies even if the course in question is not applicable toward the degree being awarded, and even if the one-year time limit for finishing incomplete grades has not expired. The transcripts of graduated students are sealed at the time of graduation, and no changes can be made after the graduation date.

Students cannot graduate if the indication "Z" appears in place of a grade on their transcript. The "Z" indicates that the faculty member teaching that particular course did not submit a grade to the Office of the Registrar. The student is responsible for contacting either the faculty member or the department chair to ensure that a grade is submitted.
