Students expected to graduate should review the following steps, which contain important information and action items that should be completed prior to graduation.
Review unofficial academic record
Review your unofficial academic record on Student Information Online (SIO) for missing or incomplete grades and missing transfer credit.
- If you have any outstanding transfer credit, you must have the other school send an official transcript directly to the University Registrar's Office, 5000 Forbes Avenue, Warner Hall A-19, Pittsburgh, PA 15213. Our office will distribute the official transcript to your department for approval. Please make sure your department knows to expect the transcript.
- Important: Transfer credit and missing or incomplete grades should be resolved before your expected graduation semester to ensure certification of your degree.

If you ARE continuing at CMU
If you are continuing studies at Carnegie Mellon, register for classes for the upcoming semester. This will help us know that you plan on continuing your studies, and it will keep your Andrew ID from expiring automatically.
If you ARE NOT continuing at CMU
If you are not continuing studies at Carnegie Mellon, please do not register for classes. Your enrollment status will change to ‘pending graduate' for the upcoming semester. This will prompt the system to: a) remove upcoming charges, b) remove your access to register for courses, and c) set your Andrew ID to expire.
If you are attending the May Commencement Ceremony
If you are attending the May Commencement Ceremony in Pittsburgh, be sure to check the Commencement website for updated information. Past August and December graduates should bring their diploma with them. Otherwise, a blank diploma case will be issued during the ceremony.
