Steps to Graduation

1. Verify you are eligible to graduate with the recorder at your school or division, i.e. Education, immediately.

2. Orders for your cap & gown are now closed. You can still walk in commencement, but you will need to go to the Bookstore on April 28th to pay and pick up your gown. There will be a $75.00 late fee. All of you that did order your cap & gown in advance you will pick them up in the Bookstore April 28th-30th.

3. Check Walk List. After you have ordered your cap & gown please verify your name is on the list. The list has been updated since March 31st at 9:00 am. If your name appears highlighted in red, please contact your school because the registrar doesn't have you listed as graduating.
