Graduation Requirements

Graduation requirements for students seeking a degree, technical certificate, or certificate of proficiency include the following:

  • Successful completion of all academic coursework, including required developmental courses, with a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.00
  • Successful completion of the required number of credits and specified courses
  • Completion of at least 24 credit hours as a student at UACCM required to earn an associate degree (AA, AS, AAT, AAS, AGS); completion of at least 50% of the required courses as a student at UACCM for a technical certificate or certificate of proficiency
  • Satisfaction of all financial obligations to the college

Students have five years to complete the degree or technical certificate program requirements in the catalog under which they initially enrolled at UACCM. Students may not graduate under a catalog dated before their initial enrollment at UACCM. Students who do not complete program requirements within five years of initial enrollment must complete requirements under the current catalog of their anticipated graduation date.

Honor Graduate Requirements

Students who meet the following requirements may be designated as Honor Graduates:

Highest Honors

Students completing graduation requirements for a technical certificate or associate degree may be designated as graduating with Highest Honors if they have earned a 4.00 cumulative GPA.

Honors

Students completing graduation requirements for a technical certificate or associate degree may be designated as graduating with Honors if they have earned a 3.50-3.99 GPA.

Transfer students must have completed at least one-half of their certificate or associate degree requirements at UACCM with the required grade point average (GPA) to be designated as an Honor Graduate.

NOTE: The designation of HONORS and HIGHEST HONORS, signified by gold cords at the commencement ceremonies, will be determined based on each graduate’s cumulative GPA immediately preceding the graduation semester due to the unavailability of current final grades. Actual HONOR GRADUATE designations that will appear on the graduates’ transcripts and diplomas will be determined based on final cumulative GPA.
