Graduation

Graduation

Students should apply for graduation with their Dean's office. The Office of the Registrar places students on the expected graduation list once notified by the Deans's office.  We (the Office of the Registrar) must receive notice from the Deans' office when a student changes their graduation date after initially applying to graduate. 

Before Graduation

Students are encouraged once they apply to graduate to make sure their name and mailing address are correct with the Registrar's Office.    If you have a official or minor name change you would like listed on your diploma, contact Debbie Meyers
