The Graduation Office is responsible for qualifying students for graduation and planning the graduation ceremonies held in February and June. The Graduation Office is responsible for determining whether a student is eligible to graduate and advises students of deficiencies for graduation purposes.
Students who currently have courses in progress
Students who are currently enrolled in courses that are needed to meet graduation requirements must verify successful completion of those courses before being eligible to graduate. If you are not eligible to graduate, then you must re-apply for graduation once you are enrolled in your final semester.
