Graduation Requirements


It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that all diploma/certificate and program requirements have been met. 

Submission of the Application to Graduate form by the required deadlines ensures that the Graduation and Awards Coordinator will have the opportunity to review the student’s program requirements and complete an audit. 

Students should be aware that courses not required for their program will not be used to calculate their final Cumulative GPA.
