Graduation Application Procedure

Graduation Application Procedure

Students should apply for graduation after they have accumulated a total of at least forty-five (45) semester hours, including transfer hours, toward their degree or by the end of the third week of their graduating semester.

Students are required to list all colleges and universities previously attended on the application for graduation. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that official transcripts from all institutions attended are submitted to the Office of Graduation, Employment, and Transfer Services prior to the application deadline for the semester in which they plan to graduate (see the Academic Calendar). Failure on the student’s part to submit official transfer transcripts by this date will prevent final graduation approval.

Additional information, such as course descriptions, catalogs or syllabi may also be required in order to evaluate or document transfer credit. These documents along with all requested course substitutions must also be submitted by the student prior to the graduation application deadline.

Students concurrently enrolled at another institution, in program required coursework, will be required to provide verification of enrollment and evidence of satisfactory progress before participation in commencement is approved. They must also provide an official copy of their transcript from that institution within four weeks after the last day of their graduating semester. Failure to do so may affect their graduation status.

Spring and Summer graduation applicants must submit their application no later than the Friday of Spring Break to ensure their name is included in the Commencement Program.

Additional information regarding graduation procedures and application deadlines is available in the Office of Graduation, Employment, and Transfer Services, and is published in the Student Handbook and the College newspaper.
