It is the responsibility of the student to apply for graduation in the final semester of study before the deadline indicated on the academic calendar.
Students must apply for graduation via CaneLink.

For more information on commencement ceremonies, please visit:


Students who have met all of the degree requirements, and have submitted their Final Portfolio, will be cleared for graduation after grades are posted for their final semester. Degree conferment can take between 2-4 weeks after the end of the semester to show on CaneLink.

Students who apply for graduation, but who have not met the degree requirements because of the number of courses taken or an incomplete grade, must reapply when requirements are met in order to have the degree conferred.

A student who “walks” at commencement but has not obtained thirty credits must reapply for graduation.

Diplomas are mailed to students 6-8 weeks following the close of the semester and conferring of the degree.
