Students who meet the requirements for graduation will follow this procedure to graduate:
- File a Request to Graduate form with the Registrar’s Office at the beginning of the semester in which they plan to finish their required course work.
- Students should also check with their advisor when they register for that semester to be sure that all requirements have been met.
Graduation (commencement) ceremonies for students completing associate degree and certificate programs are held once a year on the last Friday of the winter semester. Participation in the graduation ceremonies is strongly encouraged, but not required. Cap and gown for graduation must be ordered in the Kirtland Bookstore before March 1. For more information about graduation fees, contact the Registrar’s Office.
