Preparing to Graduate
What's the difference between Graduation and Commencement? Graduation is the act of receiving a degree in your program of choice. Commencement is the celebration for students who are graduating.
Preparing for Graduation
- Degree Audit: Run a degree audit each term before registration.
- Transcripts: Be sure to submit all required transcripts; review the Application Checklist for more info!
- Apply for Graduation: If you meet all graduation requirements for your declared major, the Registrar's Office will notify you by email the first week of the term in which you will complete your degree requirements. Otherwise, you may complete the Application for Graduation form. Submit the application to the District-Wide Registrar's office by the priority deadline:
Summer Graduation - June 20
Fall Graduation - October 7
Spring Graduation - March 1
Applications received after the priority deadline will be processed, however it is
possible that your name will not be printed in the graduation program.
ATTENTION: Fall 2018 diplomas have been placed on back order by our vendor. They will be mailed by the 3rd week of February.
You will receive a diploma cover during the commencement ceremony. Diplomas are issued about four weeks after commencement provided all graduation requirements are met and all holds are cleared.
