Preparing for Graduation

Are you ready to graduate? Students who are close to graduating are encouraged to follow this checklist.

  1. Meet with an advisor at least once a semester prior to graduation.
  2. The advisor will prepare a graduation check to make sure graduation requirements have been met.
  3. If you have classes from another institution that will meet degree requirements, complete a Transcript Evaluation Request form and submit it to one of the campus Admissions offices. You should receive an email verifying the evaluation has been completed.
  4. Follow up with your advisor to make sure all course substitution waivers have been completed (if applicable).
  5. If all graduation requirements have been met, complete the Application for Graduation form and your advisor will sign it.
  6. Return the Application for Graduation Form to one of the campus Admissions offices by one of the following deadlines.
    1. Summer Graduation - June 20
    2. Fall Graduation - October 1
    3. Spring Graduation - March 1
  7. The Admissions/Registration office will notify you of your graduation status. Applications filed after the deadline will not be processed. It is your responsibility to reapply for graduation.
  8. All degree applicants are required to take the CAAP Exit Exam. You will not receive your diploma if you do not take the exam.
