Summer 2016 Completers: Deadline for applying for summer completion is Friday, June 24, 2016! Here are the steps you need to take:

1. Pick up a graduation application in Student Services or request one be sent to you.

2. Meet with your advisor.

3. Return application on or before June 24, 2016 to the Records Office, Hildebrand Hall, Room 111. Documentation used by the advisor needs to be attached to the application.

4. A preliminary graduation audit will be conducted through Student Services. You will receive a letter indicating completion of hours and payment information for the business office. If you have not met all requirements, a letter will be sent to you and your advisor listing these deficiencies.

5. If your graduation audit reveals that you have completed, or are currently registered for all classes required for graduation, a $30 graduation fee will be added to your student account. This fee will be good for the current academic year in which you apply. If you do not complete all of the required courses within the academic year in which you apply, you will be charged an additional $30 fee upon re-application.

* Reminder: There will not be a Summer Graduation Ceremony. Summer Completers will have an opportunity to participate in a future Graduation Ceremony.
