Getting Ready to Graduate?

Here’s what you need to do:

Verify Remaining Courses with your Academic Advisor

Before registering for your last semester of classes, make an appointment with your academic advisor. Your advisor will verify any remaining courses, make sure you are on track to graduate, and make sure you have the correct program code on your record.

Submit your Application to Graduate

Deadline to submit your application to participate in the
Commencement Ceremony:
March 25

You are eligible for this year’s commencement if you are enrolled in your final Winter semester for completion, or have completed in the past Fall or Summer semester.

Students who are graduating in the Summer term and have a need to participate in the current commencement due to extenuating circumstances, may submit a
Commencement Appeal Form.

You may apply for graduation once you are enrolled in your final semester for completion of your program of study. Please go to My BackPack and select the "Graduation Overview" tab/link to apply for graduation. You will only be able to apply for degrees that are listed as programs of study on your record.

Transcript and Diploma

Once final grades are submitted and all financial obligations to the college are met, your degree/certificate will be posted to your transcript and diplomas will be mailed to the address included on the application. Allow approximately 6 weeks.
