Graduation refers to the process by which a student receives a credential upon completion of a program of study. When a student has completed, or is about to complete, their final term of the program of study, they are eligible to apply for graduation. Regardless of whether a student plans to attend the convocation ceremony, they must apply for graduation in order to receive a credential.
Students who wish to apply for graduation will contact our Graduation unit (firstname.lastname@example.org) to book an appointment with the Graduation Officer. During the appointment with the Graduation Officer, the student will be assisted to check program requirements and prepare the Application for Graduation for submission to the Registrar. Applications for Graduation are then presented by the Graduation Officer to the Registrar for final approval, and credentials issued by the Office of the Registrar.
For detailed information on program and graduation requirements, see the Academic Calendar
When a student has completed, or is about to complete, their final term of the program of study, they are eligible to apply for graduation.
The procedure to apply for graduation is as follows:
Applications for graduation can be made either after grades have been released following the final term of study, or during the final term of study (after the first day of classes)
To be eligible for graduation in an Associate Degree program, students must complete all program requirements with a minimum cumulative program grade point average of 2.0 (equivalent to a ‘C’ average).
The name printed on the degree will be the legal name of the graduate, as recorded in Alexander College’s central student information system, MyAC. The name will appear in the form of Firstname Lastname. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that the spelling of their name is accurate in the student portal prior to applying for graduation. If the legal name of the graduate has changed, a Change of Name request form must be submitted, along with supporting documentation, to the Office of the Registrar prior to graduation.
Some graduates require an additional degree parchment due to request by an employer, if the original degree parchment has been lost or damaged, or if their legal name has changed. Graduates may order a duplicate or replacement degree parchment from their MyAC account (‘My Documents’ page). Student’s graduating prior to 2011 can order a duplicate parchment by completing a paper-based order form, available upon request.
The cost per degree parchment is $25, and the processing time is approximately 2 weeks. All subsequent printings of a degree include a small notation of ‘duplicate or replacement document,’ in parenthesis.
If you have any questions about ordering a duplicate parchment, or require assistance, contact the Student Records unit: email@example.com
