Spring Semester 2022 Catalog

Graduation Information

Graduates are students who have achieved regular program admission status and have successfully completed a program of study as outlined in the college catalog with a program grade point average of 2.0 or higher. In addition, a grade of “C” or higher must be earned in courses specified on the program of study page of a program. A student who has completed all courses in a program with less than a 2.0 program grade point average is not eligible to be a graduate, but may receive a transcript. When a student reenters after withdrawal or termination, the program of study in effect at the time of reentry must be completed. A student must complete at least 25 percent of the credit hours required for graduation in residence regardless of the amount of transfer and exemption credit awarded.

All Advisor Recommendation for Graduation forms will be evaluated by the Registrar. Students should see their advisors prior to midterm of the term before their last planned term of enrollment for graduation eligibility information. All eligible graduates are encouraged to participate in the ceremony. For participation in the graduation ceremony, applications for graduation must be submitted with the required fee to the college bookstore. For more information the graduation ceremony visit the Commencement Information webpage.

Graduates who do not wish to participate in the graduation ceremony may request their degree/diploma/certificate by submitting a signed Request for Diploma form to the Student Records Office. No fee is required for the first copy of each credential.  Each subsequent copy will require the payment of the duplicate diploma fee before processing can take place.
