Graduation Eligibility

You will be responsible for planning your schedule so that you have time to finish your last course(s) before your desired graduation date. Use the table below as a guide. It is not possible for the College to schedule your examinations earlier than the official test weeks in a given semester.  Consequently, you cannot expect to receive grades for a course earlier than four weeks after the end of the semester. The Office of the Registrar is not able to accommodate any requests for early grade release.
