Do I need to apply to graduate?
Yes, simply access your Student Services tab on the go.stockton portal. Under registration tools you will find the link to apply for graduation. All graduation requirements should be completed by the end of the term in which you apply in order to participate in that semester's graduation ceremony.

When do I apply?
The application must be submitted at the beginning of the term in which you plan to complete your graduation requirements. Please obtain, complete, and submit your application by:

  • October 1 for Fall Term
  • February 1 for Spring Term
  • June 15 for Summer Term

Is there a charge for filing an application to graduate?
Please see the Registrar's  website to review all details about fees, graduation ceremonies and other details..

What should I do if I am unsure about my graduation status?
After you have filed for graduation, your graduation check-out will proceed based on the status reported on your Degree Works audit which is available on the portal through your Student Services tab. if you are a degree candidate, all courses/requirements of your degree evaluation should be reported as "met or in-progress." Any section with a red "not met" attached should be examined to see what possible issues could be corrected.  A student who is ready to graduate will have 98% indicated in Degree Works.  It will only be at 100% once all the courses are graded with successful grades.   As you begin to plan for graduation, make sure you have met with your preceptor prior to your senior year to assure that your Degree Works audit is running smoothly. Your preceptor and The Center for Academic Advising can help in interpreting your degree evaluation.

It takes 128 credits to graduate.  If a student has 128 credits but is over by 1-2 credits in one area on the audit, and under 1-2 credits on the other portion of the audit, Academic Advising will correct those areas to say "met" with the credits as along as all requirements are fulfilled.  All course requirements must be fulfilled.

Your graduation status will appear on your unofficial transcript in the following way:

  • "Sought" means that you have applied.
  • "Under Review" means that your CAPP Degree Evaluation may need correction and you and your preceptor will be receiving an email concerning the potential need to adjust your CAPP.
  • "Approved Pending Current Coursework" means that you will be cleared for graduation upon successful completion of your current coursework needed for graduation.

If I am denied graduation, do I have to apply again?
Yes, your application needs to be reactivated at the beginning of the term in which you plan to complete your degree requirements. You will not have to pay the graduation fee a second time.
