After all grades are posted for the Spring term each potential graduate’s record must then be audited by the appropriate curriculum chair for a review of all degree and/or certificate requirements. Final notification by all curriculum chairs for degree approval and/or denial of each student will be sent to the Registrar’s Office by the end of June . Thereafter, your degree and/or certificate will be posted to your student record and your transcript will indicate your degree and/or certificate was earned. Diplomas and certificates will be ordered next. Any outstanding hold placed on your account by either the Bursar’s Office or the Financial Aid Office must to be resolved with those offices before your degree can be ordered and released.
