Apply for Graduation
If you plan to graduate within the next year, you must check with your dean’s office for graduation application deadlines and notification procedures. There is a new online process to apply for graduation. Visit the Office of the Registrar website for more information and current deadlines.
You are a Forever Buff! You are part of a family with 240,000 CU Boulder alumni and 30,000 students who engage, contribute and celebrate CU.
Be sure to pick up your legacy cord if you have a family member who also graduated from CU. As part of the Forever Buffs initiative, the CU-Boulder Alumni Association has started a new tradition by providing “legacy cords” to graduating students whose family members are CU alumni. The black and gold cords are worn with your cap and gown to recognize your tie to a CU legacy family. Seniors can pick up their free legacy cord April 29-May 9, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the CU Heritage Center located in Old Main on the third floor and at The Herd’s Senior Sendoff on May 2, from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Koenig Alumni Center located on the southeastern corner of University and Broadway. Legacy Cords will also be available on the Norlin Quadrangle, the morning of Commencement, May 10, 2013. For more information, click here.
Standard graduation announcements may be purchased starting two months prior to commencement at the CU Bookstore or by calling 303-492-6411 or 800-255-9168. Personalized announcements can be ordered anytime (allow five to seven business days for printing and shipping) through CB Announcements at 800-433-0296.
Stole of Gratitude
The graduation stole is a great way to say thank you to that special person who gave you support and guidance throughout your college career. One dollar for each stole sold goes back to the Senior Class. Graduation stoles are available at the CU Book Store.
Grad Fair is CU’s official “one-stop” source for graduation information, services and products, and promises “no hassle for a tassel” for graduates while they save time and money and begin their commencement celebration.
