Today deadline for May graduation

Co-Executive Editor 

Today is the deadline to apply for May graduation.

Students must submit a graduation application through Campus Connect by the specified deadline to receive a degree or certificate.

Applications may only be completed online. To complete an application, log on to Campus Connect by using your school I.D. number and personal four-digit pin. Then go to the “student information” drop down menu and click on “graduation application.” Students need to complete the graduation survey and submit the application.

Students must be registered in their remaining courses before submitting a graduation application.

Students who graduate do not have to participate in the graduation ceremony.

All graduates who have indicated a desire to participate in the ceremony on their graduation applications will receive instructions by student email approximately one month prior to the graduation ceremony.

There is no graduation fee for students meeting the March 1 deadline.

There is a late fee of $75 for all students applying between March 2-31. The fee increases to $150 April 1-30 and no applications will be accepted after April 30.

Diplomas are not awarded at the graduation ceremony, but will be mailed when the Registrar’s Office certifies that all graduation requirements have been met.

The Spring 2013 commencement ceremony is set for May 10 in Dodson Auditorium with two ceremonies at 5:30 p.m. and 8 p.m.
