Graduation Checklist

1. REVIEW YOUR PROGRAM OUTLINE IN DEGREEWORKS.

DegreeWorks will outline any courses that are still missing from your program requirements. If there are no missing requirements, you can proceed to step 3.

2. CONTACT YOUR ACADEMIC ADVISOR 

Ask your academic advisor to review your DegreeWorks outline to see if any course substitutions are necessary to complete your program. If so, ask him/her to request or post these substitutions.

3.  APPLY FOR GRADUATION

Early in your last semester of enrollment, prior to completing curriculum requirements, ALL students must complete the Application for Graduation.  The application for graduation is available on the Student tab in your Pathway account.  Beginning the fall 2010 semester, a high school diploma or GED is required for graduation from all associate degree programs.

4. GO TO THE PTC GRADUATION WEBSITE FOR INFORMATION
