Finally, it's your turn! Congratulations! We can't wait to celebrate with you as you walk across the stage. Here's everything you need to know about graduation requirements, Convocation, and other events that will help you with the transition from student to graduate.

Apply for Graduation

Graduation requirements and procedures

In order to graduate, you must:

  • Submit an online application for graduation by the end of January in the year you wish to graduate.
  • Submit the graduation application fee along with the application.
  • Settle all financial obligations with the College, including any amounts owing on your student account and any library fines.
  • If you have received US student loans: complete the exit interview with the Financial Aid Officer.
  • Complete all the requirements of your program outlined in the Academic Catalogue.
  • Attain the minimum grade point average for your respective program:
Program Graduation GPA
GradDipCS 2.7
MA Christian Studies 3.0
MA Theological Studies 3.0
MDiv 3.0
ThM 3.3

In determining their GPA, GradDipCS students are permitted to discount courses for which they received low grades, as long as they have successfully completed the specifically required courses for the program and have completed at least 24 credit hours with a GPA of at least 2.7. The overall GPA for Masters students, however, will always take into account grades for all courses taken.

You are required to complete your program according to the requirements as published when you were officially admitted into the program by the Admissions Office. If the program requirements have changed since your admission, however, you may elect to complete your program according to the newer requirements.
