Oct. 31 is the deadline for students to submit applications to graduate in December.
Joe Jacques, assistant director of admissions, said they must be submitted by the deadline regardless of whether a student plans to walk the stage in the May 11 commencement. Jacques said the commencement includes fall, spring and summer graduates.
Students should go to their faculty adviser in the department of their major or field of study for advising.
A graduation package consists of an online application, a degree audit and a separate hard copy application signed by the student and a faculty adviser.
These must be submitted to the admissions and records office in Room 216 of Fletcher Administration Center, along with an academic transcript and a departmental substitution approval form, if needed.
To graduate, a student must have a cumulative grade-point average of 2.0 or higher in all coursework that applies to the degree, have a minimum of 25 percent of completed coursework at this college and be in good academic standing in their final semester.
Students may apply if they have six or fewer credit hours to complete in their degree plan and those hours will be completed the following semester.
Commencement will be at 10 a.m. May 11 at Freeman Coliseum, 3201 E. Houston St. For more information, call 210-486-0200 or visit www.alamo.edu/sac/graduation/commence.
