Services and Resources
As the holder of student records, the Office of Records and Advisement is your resource for important tasks such as ordering transcripts, verifying your degree and enrollment, and ensuring confidentiality and student rights related to your educational record. Two of the most common academic services provided by the registrar are grade reporting and transcript services.

You already know you’ll experience a library’s-worth of tests during college. What you may not realize is that you’ll see a wide variety of test types. During your regular course, expect to see multiple choice, essay, cumulative and demonstration exams. You’ll also likely experience tests that are designed to measure progress at specific points of the term — like midterms and finals. They’ll happen in your regular classroom unless otherwise specified.
The final exam schedule is for standard meeting time classes. If your class is not listed, please contact your instructor.
The Academic Bulletin provides students and faculty with information regarding the curriculum. It contains course descriptions and degree requirements.
Graduation and Commencement
Graduation and Commencement are two related, yet distinctly different steps in your final journey at the University. You must apply to graduate in order to have your degree notated on your transcript and receive a diploma. You may also choose to attend your commencement ceremony in either Fall, Spring, or summer each year.
Complete the online graduation application in Self Service Carolina. The Apply to Graduate link is located under the Student tab in the bottom right corner of the page. During the application process, you will be asked to verify your program, name, and diploma mailing address. Students expecting to graduate should apply early, based upon your campus or academic unit deadlines.
