Students nearing graduation must review graduation requirements with an advisor or counselor. After it is determined that the student will complete the course work required, it is the student's responsibility to apply for the award. A student can only apply to graduate one quarter prior to their anticipated graduation date.
Applications are available in the Registration & Records office and Division offices or it is downloadable here. Upon approval, the award will be issued.
With approval of the Associate Dean, students may elect to graduate either under the catalog in effect at the time they complete the graduation requirements or under the provisions of an earlier official catalog, provided not more than five years have passed since the student last enrolled and provided that the courses required for completion are still offered. Students are advised that if they graduate under an earlier catalog some current transfer requirements to four–year institutions may not be satisfied.
When To Apply
Apply for graduation the quarter prior to the one in which the award will be completed.
Check with your Professional Technical Program Division or the Advising Center to make sure you have met all your requirements before applying to graduate. You can also view a list of requirements online:
