Applying for a Second Bachelor’s Degree

Undergraduate Degree Services assists students who apply for their second bachelor’s degree and diploma and verifies that all degree requirements have been met. The Application for Bachelor’s Degree and Diploma initiates the graduation process, participation in Commencement and receipt of the diploma.

Follow these steps:

  1. Download and complete the Application for Bachelor’s Degree and Diploma.
  2. Schedule an appointment with a major advisor. Bring the Application for Bachelor’s Degree and Diploma to the advising session to discuss the major curriculum, major catalog year and anticipated graduation date. (There are three official graduation dates: Fall, Spring or Summer.) Students planning to graduate with a minor should include the additional minor and the catalog year on the application. Obtain the advisors’ signatures for the major and/or minor on the application.
  3. Submit the completed Application for Bachelor’s Degree and Diploma, a department evaluation from the major and/or minor department, and the appropriate fee to Undergraduate Degree Services.
  4. The Notice of Graduation will be emailed to students when their degree is posted. The diploma will be mailed three to six weeks after official graduation is posted. Students may log into the CSUN Portal to indicate an address at which they would like to receive their diploma, as explained at Update Personal Information.

Deadlines for filing Application for Bachelor’s Degree and Diploma forms are published each semester on the Undergraduate Degree Services Calendar. Students who apply after the published deadline will be assessed an additional late fee of $10. Paying the late fee does not guarantee that the student will receive the graduation evaluation prior to the student’s last semester. Students who apply after the filing period deadline may delay receipt of their graduation evaluation and their graduating senior status priority registration appointment time. Commencement participation could also be affected.
