Graduation

Review the following steps to ensure your successful graduation from Medgar Evers College.

STEP 1:


All prospective graduates are required to meet with their academic advisor prior to submitting the graduation application package to the Registrar's Office. Each student should submit a packet to their advisor in the Center for Academic Advising and Student Success (CAASS) (Rm. S-220) containing the following:

  1. A signed and completed stamped curriculum worksheet.

  2. A completed graduation application.

  3. A student copy of transcript.

  4. A complete graduating senior exit questionnaire.

  5. Any appropriate waivers and/or petitions.

Note: Any student wanting to file after the filing deadline will need permission from the Director of the Student Advocacy and Support Services Center.

STEP 2:


The CAASS academic advisors will conduct the initial graduation certification review of degree candidates; and the Department Chairpersons will conduct the second review with an indication of the student's eligibility for graduation.

STEP 3:


  • The Registrar's Office will notify students of their graduation eligibility status via mail.

  • The advisors will advise the ineligible students on how to complete their missing graduation requirements.

STEP 4:


Once all of the grades have been submitted at the end of the semester, the Registrar's Office will conduct a final grade evaluation of the prospective graduates and send out the official letter conferring their degree.

  • The Registrar's office will only send out certification letters to students who have met all degree requirements.

  • The CAASS will contact all ineligible students via mail and phone for a review of their status

NOTES:


  • Participation in the Graduation Ceremony does not confirm a student's graduation from the College.

  • Ineligible students have to re-file an application (including a revised worksheet and filing fee) for graduation eligibility for the subsequent graduation period. Extenuating circumstances will be reviewed by the Director of the SASS Center.

  • Degree honors and awards are based on the previous semester's grades.
