Congratulations on your upcoming graduation! You are no doubt anticipating this milestone of achievement in your life. The goal of our graduation ceremony is to honor your achievement by putting you at the center of the event.
In order to graduate, a graduation application must be filled out and returned to the Registrar’s office. It is suggested that students request a graduation audit at least two semesters prior to graduation. The applicant's coursework will be audited and a written notification of any remaining coursework will be mailed to the student.
