Applying for graduation
Complete the graduation application (available at the end of this orientation).
Please note: If the evaluation of your academic records indicates that requirements have
"Not Been Met",
you must reapply once issues have been resolved.
On the application, please indicate each degree, diploma or certificate award (in different program areas) that you wish to have evaluated and noted on your transcript.
Receiving your degree
Expect your formal degree document within approximately 14-16 weeks after grades are entered.
However, usually within 6-8 weeks, you can see the degree notation online by viewing your transcript
or by requesting an official transcript through the Records Office.
If you are applying for two degrees and there is only one notation listed on your transcript, the other
is most likely still being processed. If the 14-16 week time period has passed, and the 2nd degree
notation still has not been entered, please contact the Graduation Evaluator at 651.779.3294.
Mailing address/name change
Your diploma and other correspondence will be mailed to the address given on the Graduation Application Form,
UNLESS a Student Change of Information Form is submitted.
Also, your diploma and other correspondence will be issued in the name currently listed in the MnSCU Computer
System, UNLESS you submit a Student Change of Information Form with specific instructions to change the name.
Valid identification is required (i.e. driver's license, state identification card, Social Security card, or
certified copies of marriage, divorce or court document) and must be done in person at the Records Office.
Law Enforcement/Nursing programs
If you are in the Law Enforcement or Nursing programs, there are special considerations and timelines that need to be met. Contact the Century College Graduation Evaluator at 651.779.3294 if you have any questions.
