Graduation Application-Registrar's Form
All graduating students must be deemed academically eligible to participate in Commencement by first submitting the Graduation Application. The Registrar’s Office will review the application to determine eligibility. As the deadline to participate in the May 2015 Commencement Ceremony was December 1, 2014, students who have not completed this application must do so immediately.
The Graduation Application is located on MyCedarCrest on the Registrar’s tab.
Commencement Attendance Form
All graduating students who plan to participate must RSVP using the Commencement Attendance Form in MyCedarCrest under the "Student Affairs" tab no later than April 12, 2015.
This form is the mandatory RSVP for Baccalaureate and Commencement.
If you do not RSVP, you will NOT be able to walk in Commencement!
Cedar Crest College's Career Planning Center asks all graduates to complete the Career Planning/Alumnae Affairs survey. The survey's purpose is to learn about your post-graduation plans and how you used career planning services during college. The survey is easy, fast, and confidential. This information is valuable to academic departments, employers, and future students and families. Data is used by the College to respond to inquiries, to change programs and services, and to connect with alumni.
Settling Fees and Outstanding Balances
All graduating students must verify that their accounts are clear. Any outstanding balance must be paid in full by May 3, 2015, in order to receive a diploma. Students may have outstanding balances due to late fees or fines.
Please contact Student Financial Services at 610-606-4602 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Loan Exit Counseling
Federal regulations require loan borrowers to complete Loan Exit Counseling in order to make borrowers aware of their rights and responsibilities.
Students will receive more information from Student Financial Services. Please call 610-606-4602 or email@example.com with any questions.
