The California State University; the California Administrative Code, Title 5; and CSUDH establishes specific academic requirements that must be met before a degree is granted. The degree will not be awarded if graduation requirements are not met. Advisors are available to help the student understand and plan to meet these requirements. This plan was created collaboratively between the advisor and the student. Each student must be responsible for completing requirements and remain informed about academic and graduation policies. 

Students can access their academic and graduation requirements in the  University Catalog online.  

Students can access important dates and deadlines in the Academic Calendar. These dates and deadlines concern deadlines to register for classes, add or drop courses, student fees and refunds, and other matters.
