Graduation Information – PDF

Graduates: See your advisor to apply for Spring graduation by February 28, 2017, to guarantee your name in the graduation program.
The College conducts one graduation date per year. The ceremony is held at the end of the spring semester. To receive a degree, certificate or diploma, and/or participate in the graduation ceremony, which includes having the student’s name printed in the graduation program, a student must meet all graduation requirements and file an application for graduation with the Registrar’s Office.   You must meet with your advisor to apply for graduation. The advisor needs to allow extra time for the appointment, so make sure that you mention that you want to apply for graduation.

Please go by the college bookstore between February 2 and March 24, 2017, to be measured for cap and gown. Cost of cap, gown, and tassel is $28.57, including sales tax.

GRADUATES: If you missed the deadline, you may still order your cap and gown and tassel.  Late fee is $33.92, including tax.  Late deadline to order is April 12, 2017.
