The Records/Registration Office assists students with registration, and dropping or adding classes. We also issue official transcripts, and process enrollment verifications, applications for graduation, address or name changes, and program of study changes. The Registrar, within the Records/Registration Office, certifies students have fulfilled graduation requirements, mails diplomas, assists students through Commencement, processes transfer and articulation credit, grades, incomplete's, course substitutions, and progress reports.
Requirements for Graduation
To receive the Associate in Applied Science Degree, Associate in Arts Degree, Associate in Science Degree, Associate in General Education, Diploma or Certificate, a student must maintain satisfactory grades in all laboratory and class subjects and a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.00. (Students must earn a minimum of 25 percent of credit hour requirements at Cape Fear Community College).
Intent to Graduate
Candidates for graduation must file an “Intent to Graduate” form and complete the Graduating Student Opinion Survey with the Registrar’s Office by published deadlines. For Spring graduation, the deadline is in March, the Summer graduation deadline is in June and the Fall graduation deadline is in November of each year. Please check the Academic Calendar for specific deadline dates.
Beginning March 21, 2011 with the Fall 2011 graduation, the Intent to Graduate form will need to be submitted via the student's WebAdvisor account. Students must complete the Graduating Student Opinion Survey and the Intent to Graduate form online. The process to complete both takes about 15 minutes, so allow ample time to complete the process once you log into your WebAdvisor account.
Students completing the online graduation survey and intent will receive a confirmation email within 2-3 business days of the submission of the form. If you do not receive a confirmation within that time frame, please contact our graduation specialist, Tammi Johnson at email@example.com or 910.362.7058.
In addition, students will receive a response letter regarding their Intent to Graduate approximately 2-3 weeks after all paperwork is received in the Registrar's Office.
Intents to Graduate for the 2012-13 academic year will not be available online until after June 25, 2012.
Upon graduation, a student’s eligibility for financial aid and veteran’s benefits will end. Therefore, students must contact the Financial Aid and counseling offices if they plan to continue enrollment and receive aid in another program beyond graduation.
Commencement exercises are held following the Spring semester and at the end of the Summer session. Students who graduate in December are invited to participate in the May commencement exercises.
Fees for graduation are not included in the activity fee. The cost for caps and gowns are paid by the student directly to the company representative from whom they are being ordered. At present the cost is approximately $25.00, but is subject to change.
Orders for caps, gowns and class rings will be accepted by a company representative during announced dates. Students who anticipate graduating at the close of Spring or Summer academic sessions will be provided a limited number of commencement announcements. Students completing graduation requirements at the close of the Fall academic session will be invited to participate in the May (Spring) ceremony .
