Three Steps to Ensure a Smooth Process to Degree Completion

If you haven't already done so, it's time to take the necessary steps to file for degree candidacy. The Commencement ceremony in May is a celebration of the many years of dedicated hard work that you have spent on your college education. However, participating in the ceremony in May does not necessarily mean that you have completed the degree requirements. Your degree will not be posted until you have finished all requirements. To ensure a smooth process to degree completion, complete the following steps as soon as possible:

  1. Complete the Graduation Agreement
    Students will receive an email containing both their Graduation Agreement and Academic Evaluation. Please review and complete the agreement by said deadline. This agreement outlines the various requirements and policies to be met in order to ensure you will complete your degree requirements and are eligible to participate in the Commencement ceremony. After completing the agreement, you are required to meet with your advisor.
  2. Application for Degree Fee
    The $100.00 Application for Degree fee must be paid when you apply for your degree. This amount includes your diploma and first official transcript. There will be a $25 late fee for missing the priority deadline of October 1 for May graduation. See academic calendar for official dates.

Remember, your advisor is available to assist you, but you are ultimately responsible for making sure you have met all major and general education degree requirements.
