Anticipation of Graduation

Students must submit an application for graduation along with the receipt for payment of graduation fees to their campus of record prior to the Continuing Student Registration period for their final semester. Graduation application deadlines and current graduation applications are available from the advising website at. A graduation review will be completed, and students will receive written confirmation of their remaining requirements. It is extremely important for graduating seniors to register as soon as they become eligible within Continuing Student registration. Senior level and capstone classes close quickly, and there is no guarantee that seats will be available in all of the needed classes to graduate in any given semester. Some courses are not offered every semester or in the summer sessions. Please check current course descriptions for expected delivery.
