Additional Information:

Expected Graduation Term

Starting in Fall Quarter 2015, undergraduate students no longer need to apply for graduation using the Graduation Application/Request for Graduation Evaluation form.

When students reach 75% or more of degree completion (80% for architecture and landscape architecture majors), as indicated on their Academic Progress gauge on Poly Profile, the Office of the Registrar will input an expected graduation term for them that is one year away. Students will receive an email from evaluations@calpoly.edu, informing them that this expected grad term has been set for them, and that they are expected to graduate within four quarters.

The expected graduation term can be viewed in the Student Center and Poly Profile.

For more information, please see the Office of the Registrar's website
