Graduation Requirements

Please see the appropriate section for information regarding graduation requirements.

Undergraduate Degree Candidates

Graduation requires successful completion of a prescribed sequence of study and a minimum 2.00 grade point average. Students with a cumulative GPA below 2.00 will not be in compliance with the criteria for good academic standing and may be subject to academic dismissal. Furthermore, as required by their program, all students must successfully complete any and all requirements as indicated on their degree audit.

All associate-level degrees require the completion of a minimum of 60 semester credits. All bachelor’s-level degrees require the completion of a minimum of 120 semester credits. While most programs have variations that require slightly more semester credits for completion, no program requires fewer than the 60/120 semester credit minimum.

Additional information regarding graduation requirements can be found in the Student Handbook.

Graduation requires successful completion of a prescribed sequence of study and a minimum grade point average of 3.00 (3.25 for Ed.D. candidates). Students with a cumulative GPA below 3.00 (3.25 for Ed.D. candidates) will not be in compliance with the criteria for good academic standing and may be subject to academic dismissal. In addition, Ed.D., DBA and OTD students must not receive a grade lower than B- in any course. No classes may be repeated. 

Students are reviewed for graduation when they have completed all requirements in their program of study. Graduation is not recorded until after semester has ended, grades have been received, and the degree audit of each expected graduate has been reviewed. Confirmation of graduation will occur approximately 30 days after final semester grades have been submitted.
