Students who expect to graduate at the end of a given term must file an application for their degree or certificate in the Admissions/Registration office. The deadlines are March 1 for spring, June 20 for summer and Oct. 1 for fall. Students may participate in a graduation ceremony held once a year in May. Students should meet with an advisor or counselor to review the graduation requirements for the desired degree or certificate. When the graduation application has been completed and signed by the student and an academic advisor or counselor, the student must return the application to the Admissions/Registration office.
All associate degree applicants for graduation are required to complete an exit assessment, the purpose of which is the improvement of instruction and student learning. Prospective graduates participate in an assessment session conducted in a group setting. Each participant completes a general education inventory and a survey of college outcomes. Contact the Assessment office at your campus for additional information and to schedule an appointment. There is no charge to the student for this service. Students with disabilities can request accommodations through the Access office.
