ceremonies are held in May and December only. To qualify for
graduation, a student must meet degree requirements and submit
a completed Diploma Application to the Academic Advising

day of classes in the term of expected graduation may still be

who have met the degree requirements but have not yet been graduated

acceptable as evidence that requirements have been met and a
degree will be awarded.
