  1. DEGREE
    Students completing graduation requirements in an associate degree are conferred a diploma in the degree granting program in which the student completed the course work.  The major will appear on the student’s official transcript.
  2. DIPLOMA
    Students completing the graduation requirements for a diploma program are conferred a diploma with the name of the diploma program indicated.  The student's official transcript will reflect the diploma name.  The date on all diplomas will reflect the semester of completion.
  3. CERTIFICATE
    Students completing the graduation requirements for a certificate program are conferred a diploma with the name of the certificate program indicated.  The student's official transcript will reflect the certificate name and date of completion.
  4. AWARDING OF MULTIPLE MAJORS WITHIN THE SAME DEGREE
    Students who meet requirements for multiple majors within a single degree granting area, whether in the same academic year or in a different academic year, will receive one diploma.  Students completing requirements in multiple degree granting areas are conferred a diploma for each degree granting area earned.
  5. AWARDING OF MULTIPLE DIPLOMA OR CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS
    Students who meet requirements in multiple diploma or certificate programs will receive a diploma or certificate for each diploma or certificate program completed.
