All students seeking a degree in May 2012 must apply for graduation. All students completing degree requirements this semester must apply for a diploma, whether they plan to attend a commencement ceremony or not. This has nothing to do with the commencement ceremony; if you expect to get a diploma, then YOU MUST APPLY TO GRADUATE. Information regarding the May 2012 commencement ceremony will be sent at a later date.
The deadline to apply for May 2012 graduation is February 24. DO NOT apply at this time for August 2012 graduation. To access the on-line degree application, go to the Secure Area in Banner Web, select Student Services and Financial Aid, then Student Forms, and lastly the Graduation Application.
Students who plan to graduate from their current program and who also plan to return in the fall in a new program, must be readmitted to the college. These students will not be able to register for fall 2012 courses until their readmission applications have been processed through our Admissions Office.
It is important that all prospective graduates contact their advisors or department chairs to make sure that they have met all graduation requirements. On-line degree evaluation reports are available through Banner Web. The evaluation reports can be viewed by selecting Student Services and Financial Aid, then Student Records, and lastly Degree Evaluation.
