Graduation Evaluation Information

Request a Graduation Evaluation

Another important step in preparing to graduate is to request a Graduation Evaluation from your professional advisor.  This is not the same as applying for graduation and should be done at least two semesters before you plan to graduate.

Please Note: This process does not apply to students majoring in Nursing, Dental Hygiene, or Respiratory Care.

Students who have completed 80 credit hours should go online and request a Graduation Evaluation. This evaluation is done by a professional advisor in HHS. A copy will be sent to your Faculty Advisor.

To complete a Graduation Evaluation Request, follow these steps:

  1. Go to PenguinPortal
  2. Select "Access My Student Information" under e-Services for Students
  3. Select "Graduation Evaluation Request" at the bottom of the page.
  4. Select "Creative Arts & Communication" from the drop-down menu
  5. Follow the prompts to complete the form
  6. Watch for an email from a professional advisor with your attached Graduation Evaluation.  Your Faculty Advisor will be copied on this email.
  7. Review the evaluation and reply to the advisor confirming that you received and reviewed it.  If you have any questions, please let the advisor know.
  8. Book an appointment online with your assigned Faculty Advisor.  If you do not know who your advisor is, please check your student profile page or refer to the email with your Graduation Evaluation.

Please note:  This process may take 6-8 weeks depending on the time of year.
A Senior Evaluation Request is not the same as applying for graduation.
