- Complete the Application for Graduation form. Print legibly on your graduation application. The name that appears on your diploma is pulled from this document and may be incorrect if not written in a legible manner. Your name should be the same as what is on your permanent record.
If your name is different, please clear up any issues with the Admissions/Records Office on the Wallace Campus in Dothan or the Student Services Office on the Sparks Campus in Eufaula.
Once completed, return the Application for Graduation form and the survey signature form to the Admissions/Records Office on the Wallace Campus in Dothan or the Student Services Office on the Sparks Campus in Eufaula. This must be returned no later than June 16, 2016.

A special registration session is scheduled for July 11, 2016. This session is conducted for all spring graduation applicants. Once your graduation application has been received, a graduation check-sheet is prepared. This confirms the final course requirements for completing your degree or certificate. A minimum GPA of 2.0 is also required for graduation. You must pick up the graduation check sheet, prior to registering, on July 11, 2016 from the Admissions and Records Office on the Wallace Campus in Dothan or the Student Services Office on the Sparks Campus in Eufaula. You will need this when meeting with your advisor.
