Steps to Graduation


1. Submit a Petition to Graduate

Students completing their degree in Summer should complete an online Petition to Graduate no later than June 15, 2020. If you have not submitted your petition, please do so immediately. The main campus will not confer your degree or release your diploma until this form has been completed. If you have not completed your petition to graduate, you must do so as soon as possible.

Petition to Graduate Forms

Please note: A student who completes a graduate degree, (this includes all required courses, electives, and transferred courses) while maintaining a minimum GPA of 3.950, receives Graduate Academic Honors. Accelerated sequential degrees are excluded from this designation. If you believe you qualify for honors, please contact the campus so they may verify.

2. Clear Business Office Accounts

Students who have completed all of their academic requirements to graduate must clear their Student Business Office account balance prior to diploma and transcript release. Credit card payments are subject to a 2.75% convenience fee. Check payments have a holding period of 10 days before release of transcripts. For more information, call the Business Office at 1-800-981-9803.
