Graduation Process

All students are required to submit an Application for Degree form to the College of Nursing Student Services Office before the deadline stated in the Academic Calendar. Any student who fails to meet the deadline, may not be permitted to walk in the graduation ceremony. The application for degree is due early in the semester in which the student graduates.


Post Master’s Certificate (PMC) Awards


In lieu of a graduation application, PMC students are required to notify the MSN Program Administrator at the beginning of their final semester.   Upon verification of required coursework completion (identified in the student’s formal gap analysis), the college awards the PMC.  The certificate award date and concentration appear on the student transcript.  A formal certificate is mailed to the student from the college.


PMC students do not participate in the university graduation ceremony.
