GRADUATING? File your graduation form!

Many grads don't realize that to officially graduate from MC, you need to file a graduation form. This "proves" later on that you graduated from MC. Remember that ten years from now, the classes in many MC programs may have changed, especially fast-moving tech programs. F File your grad form now so there is no confusion later on.
For more information: "Academic Planning Guide" & "Apply for Graduation Form" (PDF). Also visit the "Apply for Graduation" link in MyMC.
