Applying For Graduation

Undergraduate Graduation Information

Step 1: Schedule a meeting with your advisor to discuss degree completion requirements and complete Application for Graduation form.  Application for Graduation forms are located in the Registrar's Office or in most academic departments.

Step 2: Submit Application for Graduation to the Registrar's Office two terms before degree completion. The graduation fee is $63.00. This fee will be applied to your account after the Registrar's Office has processed your graduation application. 

Graduation Application Deadline

The current deadline to apply is two full terms prior to your projected graduation.

Completion of Armstrong Degree Requirements at Another Institution

If you intend to complete degree requirements at another institution, it is your responsibility to ensure that an "official" transcript reflecting courses and grades earned arrives in the Registrar's Office.If you are enrolling in courses at another institution during your last term before graduation, all transcripts must be submitted by Armstrong's last day of class. It is your responsibility to inform the instructor of your graduating senior status and provide him/her with grade submission dates.

Graduation Status

All applicants will begin receiving emails from the Registrar's Office indicating the status of their application for graduation. Students will be notified of any incomplete degree requirements and instructions on the appropriate action to take. Students with incomplete degree requirements are encouraged to talk with their advisor immediately.

Participation in Commencement

We try very hard to inform you prior to commencement if you have not met requirements for graduation. Participating in the ceremony is not a guarantee of graduation.

Graduating with Honors

Honors are awarded according to your overall GPA at graduation. You must meet all requirements for graduation in order to be eligible. Honors designations and GPA requirements are listed below.

Cum Laude - Students graduating with a grade point average of 3.20 — 3.49
Magna Cum Laude - Students graduating with a grade point average of 3.50 — 3.79
Summa Cum Laude - Students graduating with a grade point average of 3.80 — 4.0

Students who have received Academic Renewal (forgiveness policy) are not eligible for honors.

Honors for post-baccalaureate students who are earning another Bachelor's degree will be calculated based on all undergraduate course work attempted, including grades from all previous institutions. 

Incompletes and Graduation

All requirements must be satisfied prior to graduation. No degree will be conferred with an incomplete (I) on the student's record.

Official Armstrong Transcripts with Degree Status

Official transcripts, with degree information and date conferred are available approximately two weeks after graduation. Instructions on ordering transcripts can be found at https://www.armstrong.edu/departments/registrar-transcript-requests
