All students who anticipate graduating in December must apply for graduation by November 26, 2021 to receive their degree, diploma, or certificate. December 2021 graduates are invited to walk in the spring graduation ceremony on May 12, 2022. 

  • You must apply for graduation each semester you complete a credential even if you are continuing classes in future semesters.
