Graduation Eligibility and Application
Students wishing to graduate must complete all degree requirements, including Service Learning Project, Communication Competency Requirement (CCR), and Program Portfolio (if applicable) by their intended graduation date.
It is your responsibility to complete a Graduation Application form. Ideally, you should do this when registering two semesters prior to when you expect to graduate! You can either do this by completing the online form under Quick Info or by downloading the form and returning it to the Office of the Registrar. At the time of the application, verify the spelling of your name for your diploma and your current email address for informational mailings and mailing address after graduation for your diploma to be sent.
Remember, the College does not confer a degree without receiving your complete Application for Graduation.
