GRADUATION CHECKLIST: o DECLARE/CONFIRM DEGREE CANDIDACY TERM

In order to graduate, you must declare your degree candidacy term on MyUCLA. This information is located at the top of your DPR/DARS. If you do not have a degree expected term listed, or it is inaccurate, you may add or correct it through MyUCLA (Academics >Academic Profile > Declare Candidacy Term). Or you may complete a degree candidacy form available online at registrar.ucla.edu/Forms (Graduation and Diploma > Declaration of Candidacy...). ($20 fee on BruinBill if done after completion of 160 units). Paper forms must be filed with the Registrar's Office, 1113 Murphy Hall. Please be aware that late changes could jeopardize ticketing and the printing of your name in the College Commencement Program.

o CONFIRM SPELLING OF NAME FOR YOUR DIPLOMA AND PROGRAM

Confirm the spelling of your name beginning week 4 of your degree expected term, by using the Diploma Request link on MyUCLA. This feature allows you to edit your name and to add special accents and punctuation. If you have a preferred name for the College Commencement Program only, send an email, with subject: NAME UPDATE, to commencement@college.ucla.edu by April 21, 2017.

o PRIVACY RESTRICTIONS

Check your privacy status. Go to MyUCLA >Settings>Privacy Options. If you selected Total Privacy your name will not be printed in the program and may restrict UCLA from providing degree confirmation to future employers. In order for your name to be printed in the Commencement Program, Total Privacy restrictions must be released by April 21, 2017.

o CONSULT WITH YOUR MAJOR & MINOR DEPARTMENT COUNSELOR

Visit your department counselor and review your major requirements. If you have a minor, visit your department counselor and review your minor requirements. Confirm that your coursework (completed and in progress) will satisfy your remaining major requirements.

o CONSULT WITH A COLLEGE COUNSELOR (AAP, Athletics, CAC, or Honors)

Review any outstanding requirements for the College of Letters & Science and the University OR attend an "i-Grad" or "iGrad AAP" workshop (enroll via the link on MyUCLA).

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you intend to complete any coursework outside of UCLA, in order to complete your degree, you must consult with your College Counselor to discuss your proposed coursework.

o CHECK YOUR LATIN HONORS STATUS

Students who have 90 graded UC units (excludes courses taken P/NP) and meet the GPA criteria may be eligible for Latin Honors. If you are a transfer student and meet the GPA criteria but have less than 90 graded UC units, see your College Counseling unit.

The list of required GPA criteria appears towards the end of your DARS/DPR. Latin Honors listed in the Commencement Program are calculated based on cumulative GPA including Winter grades. However, the official Latin Honors designation made to your diploma is based on your final grades at the time of degree completion. If you are a Fall 2017 or later degree candidate, please check for revised Latin Honors GPA requirements as these are all updated annually.
