An application for graduation must be completed and submitted to the Admissions and Records Office prior to receiving a degree or certificate.
See Foothill-De Anza Board Policy 6120: Graduation Requirements.
Students should regularly perform a degree audit through DegreeWorks to monitor academic progress in reaching educational goals and meeting graduation requirements. In the quarter preceding the quarter in which a student plans to graduate, a detailed review and comparison of completed coursework should be done. This will allow time to make any necessary schedule changes. Students may seek assistance from a counselor/adviser as needed. Degrees are awarded at the end of all terms.
Graduation honors are granted to those students who fulfill the requirements for an Associate degree and earn the following grade point average for all units applied toward the degree:
4.00: Highest Honors – Summa Cum Laude
3.50-3.99: High Honors – Magna Cum Laude
3.30-3.49: Honors – Cum Laude
