Graduation Status Notification


Students who apply to graduate will be e-mailed one or more Graduation Status Notification emails during their expected graduation term. Students who fail to apply to graduate will not receive a Graduation Status Notification email. 

The Graduation Status Notification e-mail will inform students either that they are on track to graduate as applied or they are lacking something to meet their graduation requirements for the term in which they applied.  There are two types of e-mails:  Not Pre-clearing and Pre-Clearing.

  • NOT PRE-CLEARING notification is sent to students as early as possible after they apply to graduate.  This e-mail will be sent to the student until they either do what is required to be on target to graduate or update* to change their expected graduation term.    Once the student takes care of their lacking requirement or updates their application information*, they will cease receiving these e-mails; they do not need to re-apply to graduate.   
  • PRE-CLEARING notification is sent to all students who have applied to graduate who are on target to graduate pending successful completion of all coursework in progress in the term in which they applied.  This e-mail is sent approximately 3-5 weeks prior to the end of the semester after the withdrawal period.  

*The Graduation Update form is used to change your expected graduation term, program of study, or diploma mailing address.

These e-mails will be sent exclusively to the student's college-issued e-mail accounts (i.e. so it is imperative that students check their account often. Notices will not be sent to non-college-issued e-mail accounts. For problems with a college-issued e-mail account, please contact the IT Service Desk at for assistance.
