Do you Intend to Graduate this Semester?

The filing period for a January 2022 degree is open from September 27 through October 27.

Go to CUNYfirst to Apply for Graduation if you will meet all requirements by the end of December 2021.  Students may NOT be pre-registered for winter module courses.

Matriculated students who are registered for Fall 2021 and will have a total of at least 60 credits at the end of the Fall semester are able to apply online for graduation using CUNYfirst.  Go to Academics under your Student Center and click on “Apply for Graduation”.  If you are not currently attending (OR do not see the link in your account) and you wish to apply for graduation, please reach out to the KCC Graduation team at: online-graduation.filing@kbcc.cuny.edu to request assistance in reactivating your record (OR if attending, activating the link), and then continue the online filing process. 

Please be aware that your curriculum (plan) in CUNYfirst must match the plan that you wish to earn your Kingsborough degree in. You will not be eligible for graduation if the curriculum (plan) you have been taking courses in does NOT coincide with your official plan as listed in CUNYFirst.  For example, you cannot be evaluated for an Accounting degree if your official plan on file is Liberal Arts.  All requests that do not follow this guideline are denied with no exceptions.

In order to earn a degree you will need to meet the following general requirements:

  1. Be matriculated during your last term of attendance at Kingsborough.

  2. Earn 60 credits (or the specific credit requirement for your major) and meet the specific course requirements for your degree.

  3. Have a minimum 2.00 cumulative grade point average at the end of your last term.

  4. Have passed a Writing Intensive Course (WIC) if you entered Kingsborough in Fall 2010 or later.

  5. Meet any required grading requirements for course(s), such as a minimum grade of "C" in Nursing courses.

  6. Have passed the CUNY Reading, Writing, and Mathematics assessment examinations.

  7. Have completed one Civic Engagement (CE) interaction if you are a Pathways student; click here for a list of Civic Engagement courses.

  8. Have a current online graduation application filed with the Registrar’s Office.

PLEASE NOTE--The filing period for January 2022 potential graduates will not be extended past the October 27th deadline.  Please apply in a timely fashion.  

REMEMBER--An application generates the evaluation for graduation. If an application is not filed, an evaluation is not done.  Previous applications are not automatically reactivated, and students are required to reapply.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION--All requirements toward a January 2022 degree must be completed by the end of the Fall 2021 session in December.  Pre-registered winter module courses are applied toward June 2022 degrees.  Students who are registered for winter classes are NOT considered for January 2022 degrees and are automatically denied.  They must reapply in the Spring when the June 2022 filing period opens.  Check the KCC website’s online calendar.

REMINDER--No applications will be accepted past the filing deadline.  There will be no exceptions.
