Graduating Senior Check

NOTE that the AAR / Academic Advisement Report is NOT set up to show your progress with LALS requirements, but it will show students where they stand with general education and other graduation requirements (180 credits, P/NP percentage, etc).


If Graduating with a Single Major:

  1. Please come to the LALS office (Merrill 32) or send an email to to complete a graduation check.
  2. If you completed the Senior Exit Requirement via creative project, senior thesis, or expanded paper (not by taking a senior seminar LALS 194 course), you must submit a Senior Exit Requirement Completion Form (signed by your faculty advisor) to the LALS department. If you wrote a thesis, you must additionally provide an electronic copy to the department.
  3. Apply to Graduate on your portal. Register separately for ceremonies (see below).


If Graduating with a Double or Combined Major:

  1. Follow the process above, and also check with the other department to make sure you have completed all major requirements.
  2. Always check with your college as well, to make sure you've met non-major requirements.


Time to celebrate!

  1. If you applied to graduate, you will be invited to the LALS End Of Year Celebration, which takes place at the end of Spring quarter. Please RSVP when you receive your invitation.
  2. Also make sure to check with your College about commencement, with El Centro if you want to participate in the Chicanx and Latinx Graduation ceremony, and with Cantú Queer Center to participate in the Rainbow Ceremony.
  3. So many celebrations and so many reasons to celebrate. Congratulations!
