Graduation Checklist

Please Note: You must apply to graduate in order for your award to be reflected on your transcript. 

Graduation applications should be submitted during your last semester at Century by the deadline:

  • Spring 2014 - April 4
  • Summer 2014 - July 18
  • Fall 2014 - November 7

View and print your degree audit or DARS and verify the following:

  • Your degree/major and catalog year are listed correctly.
  • Transcripts from other colleges/universities have been evaluated.
  • Make sure previous grades of Incomplete are now graded.
  • Confirm completion of any internships, externships, or clinicals.
  • All academic petitions are recorded on your DARS.
  • Confirm that your account is paid up by checking for any holds on your account.
  • Compare with your unofficial transcript that any repeated courses are noted or complete a Repeat of Course form.

If your DARS does not reflect you have met all of the program requirements or if you have any questions, please meet with a Century counselor or your program advisor to review your DARS report and discuss possible issues that may prevent you from graduating.

Appy to Graduate, print the Graduation Application and Pre-Graduation Follow-up Survey. Bring the completed forms to the Records office, West 2220.

Applications received after the deadline will be processed in the next term.
