Date of Degree and Commencement Ceremony

The Navigator 2012-14

For degrees awarded for fall, winter, or spring quarters, the date of your degree is the last day of the quarter. For degrees awarded for summer, the degree date is the last day of instruction of Summer Session II.

Commencement is offered by the colleges once each year at the end of the spring quarter. Consult your college for commencement ceremony information. Note: You must be affiliated with your college for at least two quarters before graduation.

If you plan to participate in the commencement ceremony but will not complete your degree requirements until a later quarter, do not apply to graduate on MyUCSC until the quarter in which you will complete all degree requirements. Contact your college office to be included in commencement exercises. You need not apply for graduation in order to participate in commencement ceremonies.
