Application for Graduation

The Application for Graduation can be obtained online or through your Academic Advisor.

The Application for Graduation is required regardless of whether a student decides to participate in the ceremony. The application is an “exit interview” in that it requires students to meet with various departments to ensure graduation eligibility. Once all listed departments have signed off, the Student Services Department will collect and process the application.


A student who has completed the degree requirements for their program or a student that will be completing their remaining degree requirements in their program by the end of the calendar year may participate in the commencement ceremony. In order for students to receive their diploma, the Graduation Application Department Checklist must be completed. Diplomas will not be given at graduation, they will be sent via mail to the address provided by the student on the Graduation Application form.
