Your Final Semester


The final review of your graduation application takes about 3-4 weeks from the time academic standing has been processed, January 11th.  This means that most degrees will be posted by February 6, 2023.  

To check if your degree has been awarded please go to MySJSU to view your unofficial transcripts.  For instructions on how to view your Unofficial Transcript, see View My Unofficial Transcript.  Additional details are available [pdf].

If you did not complete all degree requirements you will be sent a Hold Letter to your preferred email.  The Hold Letter will outline outstanding degree requirements.  Learn more about this status [pdf].
