The Graduation Process

Graduation is the official process of earning a degree or certificate. Commencement is the annual event where we celebrate our graduates’ accomplishments along with family, faculty and staff, and the community.

When you apply to graduate, advisors and staff in the Registrar’s Office check to certify that all program requirements have been satisfied. To ensure your name is in the printed commencement program, apply for graduation at your college by Monday, May 9.

Refer to your college’s graduation website for information about applying for graduation, diplomas, and related information.
