Prepare to Graduate

If you're completing a program of study (including Nurse Assistant and EMT) by the end of the semester, you'll need to apply to graduate. The earlier you apply, the better. That way we can make sure everything is good to go.

We also hope you celebrate your accomplishments by participating in the Commencement ceremony.
