Timely Graduation Requirement
CSULB's Timely Graduation for Undergraduate Students policy was established to provide access to the University's undergraduate major and minor programs for as many qualified students as possible and to ensure timely graduation for current students. Under this policy, students may earn up to 120% of the number of units (which means the 120% limit equates to 144 Timely Graduation units) required for the degree in their declared primary major in order to complete the degree. The policy does not entitle students to add or change degree objectives (e.g. majors, minors, certificates) simply because the objectives can be completed within 120% of the number of units required for the degree.
In addition, the policy requires that a student must apply to graduate online by the time the student has completed 100% of the units required for the declared primary major.
Please see Timely Graduation from Student Records for more information.
