Touching Lives. Transforming Health Care.


The College of Nursing and Health Innovation is proud to recognize those students who are reaching the successful end of their academic programs. We celebrate your achievement through several events and ceremonies.

Applying for Graduation

Students who are completing or scheduled to complete the academic requirements of their degree are required to inform the University of their intent to graduate by Applying for Graduation. In order for your degree to be conferred, you must apply for graduation. Degrees are conferred only after the student has successfully met their academic, financial, and other university obligations.


The formal, public ceremony held to recognize and congratulate degree candidates, held every May and December.

Latin Honors

Please use the website to determine if you meet the Latin Honors requirements. For ceremony purposes, Latin Honors are determined based on GPA at the end of the previous semester. However, if Latin Honors are earned at the end of the graduation term, it will be indicated on the diploma.
