Take the Next Step: Apply for Graduation

IV Leader Staff

Are you ready to graduate or complete a degree or certificate from IVCC at the end of the fall semester?

If you think you may be eligible for a degree or certificate, you must apply for graduation for it to be posted to your academic record and to receive a diploma.

Participation in the spring commencement ceremony is optional.

The deadline to apply for Fall graduation is Tuesday, Oct. 1.

There is no fee to apply and there is only a one page form to complete.

The form takes a couple of minutes to fill out and lets the Counseling Center know that you will be ready to complete a degree or certificate in December.

If you are unsure as to whether or not you are eligible at this time for a degree or certificate, you are highly encouraged to speak with an IVCC academic counselor.

A counselor can review your academic record and your program of study to determine if you have all of the requirements for completion.

Another option to determine your eligibility is to review your degree audit on your personal WebAdvisor account.

At IVCC, there are a number of Associate in Applied Science degrees that have corresponding certificates that you can earn along the way.

If you think that you have the requirements fulfilled for one of the certificates, you may want to apply for graduation for that certificate so your academic record will show your progress toward your degree.

There is one commencement ceremony at the college, which will be held on Saturday, May 16, 2020.

All students who have graduated in the Summer and Fall terms are invited to participate in the commencement ceremony. There is no fee to participate in the ceremony. Detailed information is provided in the early part of the Spring semester.

Graduation applications are available in the Counseling Center (Room CTC 202) or by visiting http://www.ivcc.edu/graduation.

Any questions about graduation can be directed to Karen Gregorich in the Counseling Center at 815-224-0444
