2022 Graduate Information


Diplomas are dated and awarded to graduating students each semester or session (Fall, Spring, and Summer) upon graduation clearance of each student.

The Commencement date or the last day of the corresponding term is the date recorded on diplomas and transcripts for all students fulfilling degree requirements within a degree granting period. The diploma is imprinted with the name of the degree awarded and the student’s major(s). Minors, emphases, tracks, specializations, and concentrations are not printed on the diploma.

Diplomas will be mailed to graduates approximately ten to twelve weeks after the end of the term in which the degree is conferred.  All accounts with Colorado State University Pueblo must be paid in full and reflect a zero balance before a diploma will be awarded. Replacement diplomas may be issued upon signed request from the original holder. Please check with the Registrar’s Office for current diploma replacement fees. 

Diploma Covers

Diplomas covers were provided to each student during the in-person ceremonies. If you did not participate in an in-person ceremony you may pick up a diploma cover from the Office of Student Engagement and Leadership (OSC 102) or request that one be mailed to you by emailing 

Ceremony Photos

Photos taken during the ceremony can be ordered from Grad Foto. Your photo proofs will be sent to your email address and cell phone number that you provided on your card at Commencement. Questions about photos can be directed to Bob Olmstead, 405-364-1779 or  

Academic Honors

If you graduated with honors but did not participate in the in-person ceremonies, you can pick up your cords from the Office of Student Engagement and Leadership (OSC 102) or request that your cord be mailed by emailing

There are three levels of University (baccalaureate degree only) scholastic honors at graduation: summa cum laude, magna cum laude, and cum laude. A minimum of 60-semester credits for students in the 20-21 catalog and 60-semester credits for all previous catalogs must be earned at CSU Pueblo for a student to be considered for these honors. Remedial courses, credit within Academic Renewal, and credit by examination cannot be included in the required 60-semester credits.

Honors Levels & Requirements:

Summa Cum Laude

A minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.900 is required.  

Magna Cum Laude

A minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.750 is required.

Cum Laude 

A minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.500 is required.

While honors will be listed in the commencement program for those who may reasonably anticipate them, the listing in the program is not a guarantee of receiving honors. The listing and reading of cum laude status for degree candidates are based on the grade point averages achieved at the beginning of the student’s final term. The official honor awarded, based on the final grade point average and hours earned in residence, will be noted on the student’s diploma and transcript.
