In order to receive a degree or certificate, students must complete the Graduation Application process.  A graduation checklist outlining the requirements is available at the Counseling Center or on STAR at Preparation for graduation, including meeting all requirements, is the responsibility of the student. A commencement ceremony takes place at the end of each Spring semester.

Students are required to schedule an appointment with a counselor to complete the appropriate graduation application and to make payment of degree/certificate fees at the Cashier’s Office.

Continuing students (with no break in enrollment) may meet the program requirements stated in the catalog for their year of entry into a program major, or they may choose to meet the requirements of any subsequent change in the program.  However, students who stop-out must meet program requirements of the Catalog in effect upon their re-entry, or may choose to meet the requirements of subsequent program revisions that occurred while they were continuously enrolled.
