Any balance due to the College or holds on your record will prevent the release of the diploma or certificate.

Graduating Veterans

Graduating Service Members who participate in Commencement will receive a patriotic cord to wear for the ceremony. Please pick up your cord when you check-in for Commencement on May 8 (Verde) or May 9 (Prescott).
