Student Services: Graduation and Commencement Ceremony

Each term all students meeting program requirements will be automatically graduated. The graduation date will be the date of the end of the college term in which the student fulfills all academic requirements for the degree, certificate or diploma and fulfilled all obligations, financial or otherwise to the college. A graduation notation will be made on the student’s transcript. Diplomas will be mailed six to eight weeks after the degree, certificate, or diploma is awarded and reflected on the student’s transcript.

The College holds one commencement exercise each year at the end of the second academic term, generally in May. Graduates from the fall term and potential graduates for spring term are strongly encouraged to attend the ceremony. Students graduating at the end of the summer term may participate in the next formal commencement exercise. Students requesting special permission to walk early in the commencement exercise should contact their campus dean of student success. Refer to the College’s graduation webpage for more information about commencement and graduation.

Note: The annual commencement program is printed prior to the recording of grades for the spring term.  For commencement program purposes only, it is necessary to identify honors designation for candidates for graduation based upon their all-college cumulative grade point average at the beginning of the spring term.
