items that we discussed are covered within this website.

to Graduate. Once you turn it in, Mark
Baker will add your name to the list of graduates, he'll include you
on all graduation-related emails, he'll order your regalia and your
diploma, and he'll charge the graduation fee. Then, he'll do a preliminary
graduation audit to ensure that you've completed (or will complete)
all of the requirements for your program. He'll pass that preliminary
audit to the registrar, Dr. Rob Wiggins, who will do the official audit.
Once the official audit is complete you'll receive a copy of the audit
via email from Dr. Wiggins.
graduation fee is charged to your student account as a fall charge if
you are graduating in the fall, and as a spring charge if you are graduating
in the spring or summer. You should pay your graduation fee at the time
it's charged to your student account, and no later than April 1. The
fee is applied towards the costs of your diploma, the graduation audit,
the banquet tickets, and much more. However, the fee that we charge
is much less than the actual costs for you to graduate. The majority
of the costs are covered by the Seminary. As a result, we ask even students
who are graduating in absentia to pay the fee.
the graduation meeting, we passed out the Graduation
Information Memo. Please read this memo carefully and notify the
Registrar's Office if you have any questions.
you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mitra Motlagh.
