When to Apply:

You must have an expected senior standing at the time of your application. In other words, your earned credits plus the credits you are currently enrolled in should equal 90 or more and 75% of your degree requirements have been completed. This should occur approximately 2 academic semesters before your anticipated final semester.

  • Fall Graduation: Apply by May 1st
  • Summer/Spring Graduation: Apply by October 1st
  • To Attend Spring Commencement: Apply by October 1st; if application has already been submitted, attendance decision may be updated by or before April 9th. Failure to adhere to this deadline will result in the student's name not appearing in the commencement program.

Application Instructions:

  1. Complete the application for graduation 
  2. Once you have applied, a $20 graduation fee will be placed on your student account. You may pay this fee along with any outstanding tuition or fees through your myNSC Student Center by clicking “Make a Payment
  3. Make an appointment with your academic advisor to make plans to complete any outstanding requirements by the end of your graduating semester. You may also review your Academic Requirements Report under "My Academics" in myNSC.
  4. Prepare for Commencement.

Note: Graduation requirements are determined based on the requirements in effect in your catalog year.

If you do not anticipate completing your degree requirements in the semester you applied for, you must submit a completed Graduation Update Notification E-Form.

COMMENCEMENT

Please visit www.nsc.edu/commencement for more information.

DEGREE POSTING

NSC post degrees 3 times per academic year.  Degree posting dates are at the end of each term. Spring and Fall degree posting dates are the last day of the regular semester.  In the summer, the last day of the term is the end of the 14-week summer session.

DIPLOMAS

Diplomas are ordered once all semester grades have been posted, remaining transcripts have been submitted and entered, and degrees have been posted to the student account. Diplomas will be mailed to graduates from the vendor approximately 12 weeks after they are ordered. Students should ensure that their address is accurate with the Office of the Registrar, as diplomas are mailed to the current address on record. Students with outstanding financial obligations will not receive their diploma until all such obligations have been met. Please note that we do not automatically send transcripts to outside agencies, such as licensing boards. A transcript request must be submitted along with the appropriate fees.

RESIDENCY

All students are considered out-of-state residents at the time of admission to NSC. Students must submit a completed Residency Application, with supporting documentation, in order for the Office of the Registrar to consider a reclassification of residency status. The Residency Application lists each of the available pathways to obtaining residency (e.g. WUE, Armed Services, etc.). Read the application carefully to determine which category best applies to your situation. Copying services are not provided by the Office of the Registrar. Please make sure to provide copies of all your documents before submitting them to this office.

If you are a veteran, spouse, or dependent of a veteran, please see the Veterans, Spouses and Dependents: Information Request Form for Determination of Tuition Charges to determine if you qualify under one of its categories for residency purposes.
