Requirements for Graduation

Graduation exercises are scheduled twice a year, generally at the end of the spring and fall terms. All diploma program students must achieve Regular Program admission status prior to applying for graduation. All students eligible for graduation are expected to participate in the ceremony. This includes all students who have completed programs of study since the previous graduation. Graduates with a 3.90 or higher cumulative grade point average will be recognized as honor graduates and will be given an honor collar to wear with their cap and gown at graduation exercises. Students with any incomplete graduation requirements will not be eligible to receive honors recognition.

Effective April, 1992, a GED or high school diploma is required for graduation from any diploma program at South Georgia Tech. In addition to a GED or high school diploma, to be eligible for graduation, each student must satisfactorily complete the program of study as outlined by each department. A graduation grade point average of at least 2.0 is required for graduation. The Graduation Grade Point Average is calculated only on those courses required for graduation. When a class is taken more than once, the final grade will be used in calculating the grade point average for graduation.

To receive a degree, diploma or certificate from South Georgia Tech, a student is required to complete a minimum of 25 percent of the diploma or certificate requirements at SGTC.

It is the student's responsibility to complete an Application for Graduation. It must be submitted to the Admissions Office forty-five (45) class days prior to the date of expected graduation. The application must be signed by the student's advisor and a tracking sheet must be attached to the aplication. The student's records will be evaluated as to successful completion of the program.

Effective Fall Term, 1991, the following policy concerning class requirements for graduation was implemented:

Any student enrolling in programs at South Georgia Technical College will be allowed to graduate under the terms of the curriculum in place at the time of registration. This policy will remain in effect provided the student does not interrupt attendance at the College for one quarter or is enrolled in an approved co-op program with the College.

If any student who has been previously enrolled in a program at South Georgia Technical College does interrupt attendance for one term and re-enrolls at the College, the student will be required to complete the curriculum requirements in place at the time of re-enrollment. Co-op students will be allowed four consecutive terms before being required to complete curriculum requirements from the time of re-enrollment.
