Graduation Fee

The Graduation Fee is a one-time, non-refundable fee that is added to the student's account with each credential for which the student applies. The fee is to be paid when the student applies to graduate regardless of whether he/she intends to participate in the commencement ceremony.  Graduation fees are non-transferable to another term if a student fails to complete the requirements for the applied for program of study.

Students may pay fees using their eBill account in MyPortal or contact the Treasurer's Office if assistance is required. Graduation fees that are not paid after the application is submitted may result in a hold being placed on the student's record.

Diplomas/certificates/transcripts will not be released to graduates with an account balance. Students should make sure all fees, including the Graduation Fee, are paid prior to leaving the College.
