Graduation requirements for all programs

Students must satisfy all program requirements, including:

  • Admission to the program
  • Completion of the number of hours required for the program
  • Attained a minimum of a C (or CR) in all courses used to meet program requirements

Note: In the case that a student attains a grade of "C-, D+ or D" in ONE course, the Program Director and Lead, Registrarial Services have the discretionary authority to approve a student for graduation. It will be the student's responsibility to request such approval. Please submit a request for a Grade Exception for Program Completion.

It is the student's responsibility to ensure that all requirements for graduation are fulfilled in a timely fashion. Student service specialists are available to review student's status and determine outstanding requirements.
