Application for Graduation

Applying for Graduation as a Current Student

Students must apply for graduation. The application should be completed before registering for the final semester. The application must be submitted through LoLA. Once submitted, your academic record will be evaluated.

To apply for graduation, follow the steps below.

  • Log on to LoLA.
  • Go to the Student tab.
  • Select Student Records.
  • Go to Apply to Graduate.

Please check the Student Handbook for deadlines to apply for graduation. There will be a $40 late fee if you miss the application deadline.

Applying for Graduation as a Non-Current Student

Students who completed program requirements but failed to apply for graduation before registering for the final semester of attendance will have 10 years from the last semester of attendance to apply for graduation, except in cases where the program has been cancelled. The degree will be awarded within the semester in which the student applies for graduation, and a program completion date will also be noted on the diploma.

Students who are not currently enrolled for the semester but would like to apply for graduation are required to apply in person or by mail at their respective campus/site and pay a graduation late fee of $100.

To apply for graduation as a non-enrolled student, follow the steps below:
