The filing period for January 2021 graduation is now CLOSED. 

The filing period for January 2021 graduation was September 29, 2020 through October 15, 2020.  

Matriculated students who are registered for Fall 2020 and who will have a total of at least 60 credits at the end of the fall session are able to apply online for graduation using CUNYfirst.  Go to Academics under your Student Center and click on Apply for Graduation.  If you are not currently attending and you wish to apply for graduation, please click on the Graduation FAQ link on the left side of this page and follow the instructions for applying for graduation using a paper application.

Please be aware that your curriculum (plan) in CUNYfirst must match your selection on the graduation application.

PLEASE NOTE--The filing period for January 2021 potential graduates will not be extended past the October 15th deadline. Please apply in a timely fashion. Also note that participation in the Commencement Ceremony does not signify graduation.   

REMEMBER--An application generates the evaluation for graduation. If an application is not filed, an evaluation is not done.  Previous applications are not automatically reactivated, and students are required to reapply. 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION--All requirements toward a January 2021 degree must be completed by the end of the Fall 2020 session. Courses taken in the winter are applied toward June 2021 degrees. Students who are registered for Winter 2021 classes will not be considered for January 2021 degrees, and they must reapply in the spring when the June 2021 filing period opens. 

REMINDER--No late applications will be accepted past the filing deadline.  There will be no exceptions.
