May 2019 Graduation Module Assignments

    • You have been added to this program because your credit count shows you to be eligible.

If you do not send communication by this time, it will be assumed you are planning to be a May graduate.
  2. Attend a Senior Graduation Information Session
    • Mandatory Senior Graduation Information Sessions will be held in early March to review graduation eligibility. Students must attend only one session.
