Out Procedures for All Graduating or Separated Students
All Caltech graduating or separating students are expected to participate in an exit process with the Bursar's Office before commencement or leaving the Institute. This process is designed to inform students of any Bursar Account balance, update information, and address any questions students may have.
Also, if you have received a student loan while at Caltech, this process informs students of their rights and responsibilities, furnishes loan and other fiscal data, and notifies students of federal regulations where applicable.
