Important Information & Cut-off Dates
All candidates for an associate degree must submit a degree application for approval. Students are encouraged to submit their application more than one quarter before they plan to graduate so any graduation deficiencies can be resolved prior to the final quarters of enrollment. Specific degree application deadline dates can be found in the college's quarterly class schedule, under "Important Dates" or call the Registration & Records Office at (509) 574-4700. However, all degree applications must be submitted no later than the quarter in which the student plans to graduate.
Students are strongly encouraged to meet with their advisor on a quarterly basis to ensure completion of specific degree requirements.
