Getting Ready

1

Review Your Expected Graduation Term on Cal Central

Your expected graduation term (or EGT for spring, summer, or winter) is automatically generated and posted to the ”My Academics” page of Cal Central underneath your photo. If you will not be completing all requirements for your degree by the end of your EGT, you will need to meet with an advisor in your college/school advising office.

Get Listed and Ticketed for Commencement

You get one complimentary grad ticket for your campuswide commencement celebration, for which you’re automatically signed up to walk. Check our FAQ for more information about tickets. You must still register to have your name listed in the commencement program; the deadline for the winter commencement program is November 20. Check back in October for a link to do so.
