Application for Degree/Certificate

Students applying for a degree must pay a non-refundable fee of $15.

Applications for Degree/Certificate are accepted up to 1 month after the deadline but student will be assessed a late fee of $25.

To receive a degree and/or certificate students must complete an Application for Degree/Certificate prior to the deadline for the semester in which they are planning to complete their program of study.

Application for Degree/Certificate forms can be downloaded, available from an advisor, or in the Student Service Center at all three campus locations.

After the Application for Degree/Certificate is reviewed, students will receive by mail an Official Degree Review. This form will list any course requirements that must be met before the student can receive a degree/certificate.

Regardless of whether or not a student chooses to participate in commencement, diplomas/certificates will be mailed to the address provided on the Application for Degree/Certificate after completion requirements have been verified -- generally 4-6 weeks after end of semester.
