Students must apply for graduation before a degree will be posted on an official transcript. During the next to last term of enrollment, students should contact an academic advisor or counselor to ensure they meet all graduation requirements. Students will receive an email from their Academic Advisor regarding their graduation status. Final responsibility for meeting graduation requirements rests with the student, including applying for graduation by the deadline. If a student does not meet graduation requirements in the semester for which they have applied, the student must re-apply for graduation in the term they plan to complete the requirements.

To be eligible for graduation a student must have a complete admission file. This includes all certificate programs as well. All official transcripts must be received before the program completion can be posted to the transcript. If a student has an incomplete file or is completing the remaining courses as a transient student at a different institution, the official transcript must be received by the current semester's deadline. Refer to your student email account for notifications regarding the deadline.

Students may apply for graduation online by logging in to RaiderNet with their student ID and PIN. Click the "Apply to Graduate" quick link on the RaiderNet homepage. Students who are at least 75% complete in their program of study will be given the option to apply for graduation online. If you are not given the option to apply online, but believe you have completed 75% or more of your program of study, contact the Office of Enrollment Services or make an appointment to see an academic advisor or counselor. Diplomas are issued with the name students provide on their graduation application.
