Graduation Application Process

Enrollment Services will accept diploma applications from students on a continuous basis. Diploma Applications are available here or in Enrollment Services, which is located in the Parks Student Union, Room 201. There is no charge for a Diploma Application. Applications must have a completed program checklist (from the program curriculum guide) or a print out of the program Degree Audit  attached. Please allow up to four weeks for processing. Applications deadlines are:

  • Fall Quarter 2014 - August 1, 2014
  • Winter Quarter 2015 - October 31, 2014
  • Spring Quarter 2015 - January 31, 2015
  • Summer Quarter 2015 - April 3, 2015

The College holds one Commencement event each June. Some programs, such as Nursing, hold separate events. Commencement information is mailed after you submit your graduation application; information includes date, time and location, how to obtain invitations, how to order a gown, and more.

If you are planning to attend the Commencement Ceremony in June, be sure to RSVP with Student LIFE.

Once a student has completed all the requirements and grades are finalized, the notation of the certificate or degree will be added to the transcript. Depending on the time of year, you should receive your diploma in the mail in 6-8 weeks.

For students graduating Spring 2015, diplomas will be mailed out in mid-August for students who applied by the deadline. Students can view their degree by going to the Student Kiosk and clicking on Unofficial Transcript.

You will graduate with distinction if your cumulative GPA is:

  • President's Distinction 4.00
  • High Distinction 3.60 - 3.99
  • Distinction 3.20 - 3.59
