Celebration event at the end of the spring semester (May) for fall graduates who were awarded a degree or certificate of achievement, as well as spring and summer candidates who are expected to complete their degree / certificate requirements.
Graduation is the process of completing a program of study and submitting a Graduation Petition with the Admissions and Records Office. The process for graduation takes place over the course of an entire semester. During this time the Admissions and Records Office is verifying that you are completing your final classes towards your program, that you don’t have any deficiencies, and will be completing all your required classes by the end of the semester. Once the semester is over, Admissions and Records Office certifies that you have completed all requirements and posts your degree or certificate to your transcript. Your diploma is then mailed to the address you listed on your Graduation Petition.
