Graduation Application Procedures

The deadline for submitting graduation applications is Friday, November 12, 2021. Submission of late graduation applications may delay certification until the next semester.

Students are encouraged to meet with their faculty or student services advisor for review and signature before turning in the completed application to the admissions and records office, Christiansburg site front desk or by email: admissions@nr.edu.

Graduation Requirements

All graduates must have a GPA of 2.00 in all studies attempted which are applicable toward graduation.

In awarding students an additional degree, diploma, certificate, or career studies certificate, the college may grant credit for all completed applicable courses which are requirements of the additional degree, diploma, certificate, or career studies certificate. However, the awards must differ from one another by at least 25% of the credits.

Course substitutions cannot exceed 10% of the total credits of the program.

At least 25% of the credits must be acquired at the college awarding the degree.

Graduates are eligible for honors (with the exception of career studies certificates) if their cumulative GPA is:

  2. 3.500-3.799 Magna Cum Laude.
