Application for Graduation

Students intending to graduate must complete the application for graduation. Prior to completing the application for graduation, take a moment to review your degree audit report (DARS) to confirm all requirements for your certificate and/or degree(s) have been met. Please complete a separate application for each certificate/degree you plan to earn.

You can review your DARS by logging in to e-services: select Academic Records from the left side menu. Next, select Degree Audit Report and then Request Degree Audit Report. Log-in again when prompted with your Star-ID and password. You may also be asked to select your school. You will then see a screen with your listed program(s). Select Run Declared Programs from the bottom of the page and View Audit for the program(s) you intend to graduate. If your degree is not listed or a requirement is missing that you believe should be met, please schedule an appointment with an advisor or counselor to review before submitting an application for graduation.

For questions pertaining to your graduation application, contact Scott Klaehn at sklaehn@inverhills.edu.

Apply for Graduation

Part of the Graduate Application is to complete our Graduate Follow Up Survey. Please complete this survey to report your plans for after graduation. If you have questions about the survey or are looking for assistance in finding employment in your field, contact the Center for Career Development and Community-Based Learning for assistance.

Cap and Gown Information

Graduates will need a cap and gown for commencement. Graduates participating in the commencement ceremony will order the cap and gown at https://ihccbookstore.com/MerchList.aspx?ID=15532. Fees for the cap, gown and tassel will be covered by the Student Life office, but you must submit your order online using the link above. Please reserve your gown prior to March 28th. After March 28th, orders must be placed in the Bookstore, and quantities may be limited. Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) members may also order a PTK stole and tassel from this website for an additional fee (this fee will not be covered by Student Life).


Within one month after the semester ends, your graduation application will be processed to make certain you have completed your degree requirements. If you have fulfilled all requirements, your degree completion will be posted to your transcript and you will receive an email confirming completion of your degree. Your unofficial transcript showing your degree completion can be access through e-services. If you need an official transcript showing completion of your degree, visit the transcript request page. Employers and other outside agencies can verify degree completion through the National Student Clearinghouse.


When you have completed your requirements, the Enrollment Center will order your diploma. You should receive your diploma in the U.S. Mail within 12 weeks after your last semester.
