Apply for Graduation


In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the University of Houston-Downtown is postponing its 68th Commencement Ceremony (originally scheduled for May 16).

A new date for Commencement has not been identified, but the event is tentatively expected to take place in late summer or early fall. Information will be provided as soon as it is available.


Students planning to graduate from UHD with a CST major must file an electronic application for graduation. The $50 application fee is nonrefundable, so we urge students to meet with a CST advisor before submitting the application and fee. An advisor can assess whether the potential applicant is "on track" to graduate in a particular semester.

To be successfully "certified for graduation" by CST, a student must have:

  1. Declared his/her major
  2. Completed the degree plan for a CST major
  3. UHD grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or higher
  4. GPA of 2.0 or higher for those courses taken in his/her major
  5. Up-to-date transcripts from all other universities attended
  6. Taken at least 30 semester credit hours at UHD (per UHD policy)
  7. Taken 18 semester credit hours at the upper level (3000 and above) at UHD.

If an applicant does not complete the requirements for the degree in the current semester, the applicant will not be refunded the $50 application fee and must reapply for graduation.
