Graduation and commencement are two separate events. Graduation is the process by which Minnesota State College Southeast officially confers a degree to a learner. Commencement, on the other hand, is the ceremony which publicly recognizes those learners who have graduated or will soon graduate.

Honor status is given to students graduating from a diploma, AA, AAS, or AS program who have completed a minimum of 25 resident credits including credits from the last term before graduation. Students with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 to 3.74 receive Honors designation. Students with a cumulative GPA of 3.75 to 4.00 receive High Honors designation.
Final honor status is determined after final grades are received. Honor status will appear on the student transcript at the time of official graduation. Students who participate in the commencement ceremony and who meet the eligibility requirements will receive a gold honor cord from the Registrar's Office after the cap and gown have been picked up.
Please see the Commencement page for details on this year's commencement ceremony.
Participation in commencement does not imply or assure degree conferral. Degrees are conferred when all requirements have been met.
You will not receive your actual certificate, diploma or degree at the commencement ceremony. The document will be mailed approximately 10-12 weeks after the term ends, when grades are finalized and your graduation is confirmed from the Registrar's Office.
If you need to change your graduation date to a later semester or have additional questions, please contact the Registrar's Office at the campus you will be graduating from.
