It is important to start the process of applying for graduation by no later than the second week of the quarter prior to the quarter in which you graduate. Pay the filing fee on MyCSUEB by clicking on "Apply for Graduation" (or you can pay in the Student Administration Building). Have a GE check done at Academic Advising and Career Education (AACE) (or with any other counselor that you may have worked with, such as someone who works with PACE, Project IMPACT, Project EXCEL, EOP, SDRC, etc.) Also do a Major Check with the Human Development Department. If you have completed the requirements for a Minor, complete a Minor Check with your Minor Department.
