Students must complete and submit an Intent to Graduate form as they begin their final semester of classes. Registrar’s office works with the student to be sure all classes and academic requirements are completed so that student can receive academic clearance for graduation. Financial clearance is also required.
The majority of the General Education requirements are met through the ADN (IEGTC or CSU) or equivalent with the exception of one upper-division writing course (Writing 3, 3 units) and Bible (Theology, 6 units) which are met in RNRS course requirements. Integrative and Applied Learning (3 units) GE requirements is also met in RNRS course requirements.
