Attention Law School students: for Law School graduation information, contact the Law School Registrar at 714-628-2522.
Although a student may have completed all degree program requirements, graduation is not automatic. Students who are ready to graduate must apply for Degree Conferral with the Office of the University Registrar in order to identify the semester in which they expect to complete their degree requirements. Undergraduate students must have 90 completed credits to apply for degree conferral.
Instructions for submitting the degree conferral application can be found here.
The Office of the University Registrar will assess the candidates' eligibility for degree conferral. The official conferral date will be the end of the semester in which all degree requirements have been met. Candidates for degree conferral must submit their application to the Office of the University Registrar by the deadline on their conferral date.
