Graduation Checklist

Here are some helpful tips to remember when applying and preparing for Graduation.  

 

_____  Complete Steps for a Successful Graduation and apply for graduation online in My MC. 

_____  After applying for graduation, you will receive results in the mail regarding your graduation status. Results will tell you if you have fulfilled all degree requirements OR if additional requirements are needed. Meet with your counselor, advisor or health science coordinator to review outstanding requirements and register for any remaining requirements. This is also a good time to discuss career and transfer options.

_____  If additional requirements are needed, adjust your schedule by registering for those required classes. 

FOR SUMMER AND FALL POTENTIAL GRADUATES:

_____  After final grades are posted, the Office of Admissions and Records will perform a final review of your student record to ensure that you have fulfilled all degree requirements.

_____  For those students who have completed all requirements, you will receive an e-mail to your MC e-mail address notifying you when your diploma will be ready for pick-up at the Office of Admissions and Records.  Your diploma will be available on the campus where you applied for graduation. Be sure to bring a photo ID to receive your diploma.

_____  If you have not completed all requirements, meet with your counselor, advisor or health science coordinator to review outstanding requirements and register for those required classes. This is also a good time to discuss career and transfer options.

FOR SPRING POTENTIAL GRADUATES:

_____  The Office of Admissions and Records will perform a final review of your student record to ensure that you have fulfilled all degree requirements. You will receive notification of this review and information on the Commencement ceremony.

_____  If you choose to participate:
