Who Can Participate?

The College will be honoring students who satisfactorily completed degree requirements for the semesters ending in August 2014, December 2014 and April 2015. For those who completed in April, only your academic record is being audited at this time. Because of time constraints, your non-academic record may take longer to audit. If you have not completed an application for graduation, available at the Office of the Registrar, please do so now. After an application is filed, records are then checked and eligibility for graduation is confirmed. The Office of the Registrar then prepares the list of students who qualify to participate in commencement. If you have questions about participating call extension 5008.
