  • Diplomas will be mailed by February 15, 2018. Please check with the Business Office to make sure your account is in good standing as this may prevent your diploma/official transcript from being released.
  • Official transcripts - Federal Privacy Laws state that we must require a signature from the student before we can release any document with your grades on it. If you need to order official or unofficial transcripts, please visit the Registrar Home Page, then click on the Transcript Request form.  All instructions can be found on the bottom of the form.
