Apply for Graduation
To receive your degree or certificate, you are required to satisfy all specific program requirements as stated in the catalog of the academic year that you began your degree program.
Graduation applicants must:
- Achieve a minimum 2.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA) for courses taken at Cascadia. The 2.0 cumulative GPA is required for transfer courses used to satisfy degree requirements. Transfer courses are not averaged with Cascadia's GPA. At least 25 credits must be taken at Cascadia that apply to the degree or certificate.
- Earn at least 60 degree credits with decimal grades.
- Fulfill all financial obligations to the college.
- Meet with an Academic Advisor to complete the Graduation Application and ensure all requirements will have been met after the applicant's final quarter.
If you want your name in the graduation program, turn in your graduation application by May 12, 2017.
NOTE: To schedule your Graduation Application appointment with the Academic Advisor, contact the Kodiak Corner at (425) 352-8860.
