Apply to Graduate
Preparing for graduation is a very exciting time for students and one of the most important steps in preparing for graduation is completing your application for graduation.
Please keep in mind that the graduation process is not automatic and before you can be listed as a degree candidate, you must complete your graduation checklist. This should be completed at the beginning of the last semester of your current program.
Below are the directions for completing your graduation checklist and applying for graduation:
Log into your MyCCSJ account at www.ccsj.edu (select Students at the top, and then the MyCCSJ Online Services icon)
Under Student Records go to Graduation Checklist
You will then see steps including Review Personal Information, Review Student Record Information, Review Student Billing Account, and Apply for Degree
You must complete all steps before you can proceed with applying for your degree. You will also be required to submit payment of your graduation fee, therefore, if you are unsure if you are ready to complete your graduation application or if you have taken a break in your program and would like to find out what you should do to stay on track for graduation, please contact the Office of Academic Advising.
Once your application for graduation has been completed, you will receive a confirmation email to your CCSJ email account informing you that you have been added to the graduation list as a degree candidate. Please remember that being a degree candidate indicates that you have approached the final phase of your degree requirements. You must still pass all required courses in order to remain on that graduation candidate list. If you are not eligible to be listed as a degree candidate, you will receive an email with those details as well.
Additionally, a graduation packet with details about the May commencement ceremony and other graduation events will be forthcoming in January.
