After completing all academic course requirements for your degree, diploma, and/or certificate, the completion of your credential(s) will automatically be marked on your transcript within one week of the end of the semester/term.
To participate in the annual graduation ceremony in May or to receive a copy of your degree, diploma, and/or certificate that can be used for framing/displaying, you must complete the following steps.
Step 1: If you are completing requirements for a degree, diploma, and/or certificate in December 2019, May 2020 or August 2020, you must submit a graduation application through E-Forms between November 4, 2019 and June 5, 2020. If you will be completing your degree, diploma, and/or certificate requirements in May 2020 or August 2020, you must register for your classes before submitting the graduation application.
Step 2: After your graduation application has been received and reviewed, you will be notified through your college Office 365 email account about your eligibility for graduation. If your eligibility for graduation is confirmed, your email will indicate that your graduation invoice has been submitted to the bookstore. Students who are ineligible for graduation will be asked to meet with their academic advisor and/or Student Services representative to review their academic record.
Step 3: Go to the bookstore and provide them with your Student ID to pay for your cap and gown and/or degree(s), diploma(s), or certificate(s). Postage costs for mailing the degree(s), diploma(s) and/or certificate(s) are included in the fees. Note: Degrees, diplomas, and certificates will not be distributed at the graduation ceremony. They will be mailed at a later date and the timeframe for mailing will vary depending upon what semester/term graduation requirements are completed. Additional details will be posted on the graduation webpage in May 2020.
