Graduation in Four

Whether your student is a freshman or a senior, it is never too early to start preparing for graduation. In fact, the earlier you and your student start thinking about it, the more likely he or she is to graduate on time and in good academic standing. Meeting regularly with an academic advisor and creating a four-year plan will help your student stay on track. Once students have completed or are scheduled to complete all the requirements for their degree program, they may apply for graduation through the Registrar's Office.
