Application for the Degree
Students completing degree requirements submit a degree application to the Office of the Registrar no later than the deadline date in the Academic Calendar during the last term in attendance. Degrees are awarded in January, May, and August, to students who have fulfilled all requirements and have met all financial obligations to the College.
Commencement exercises are held following the close of the Spring semester, and participation is open to students who have completed or will complete degree requirements during the current academic year. Students who are within six credits or two courses of degree completion and who can fulfill the requirements prior to the beginning of the next academic year may participate in the Commencement exercises. However, participation in the ceremony does not constitute graduation. Also, no degree will be conferred until all academic requirements have been satisfied, and no diploma will be released until all financial requirements have been satisfied.
