The requirements for graduation with Honors are the following:
1. Completion of a minimum of 60 graded quarter units in residence
2. A minimum of 3.30 grade point average in all units at CSUB
3. The overall grade point average for an undergraduate must be within the honor categories
Honors are awarded if the student's cumulative grade point average (GPA) and CSUB GPA both reach the following standard:

- 3.60 - 3.89 Magna Cum Laude
- 3.90 - 4.00 Summa Cum Laude

You must notify the Office of Admissions and Records with any changes to your mailing address after the Application for Graduation has been submitted. Failure to provide a current address may delay the response of the application and/or diploma.
Diplomas will be mailed within four to six weeks after the date of graduation, or within two weeks from the actual degree award date. If you want to pick up your diploma, indicate “pick-up” on your application for graduation. If you arrange for someone to pick up your diploma, he/she must have written authorization from you, and provide proper identification.
Proof of Graduation
Your official transcript with degree conferral date, not your diploma, is considered your official proof of graduation. Should you need proof of graduation for any reason before your diploma is released, you may fill out a Transcript Request Form and check “degree recorded” so your transcript will be released with degree conferral date.
Students wishing to continue taking classes after receiving a Bachelor's Degree must re-apply for admission to the university as a graduate student. Students may apply online at www.csumentor.edu.
