Letters of Qualification (LOQ)
After you have completed degree requirements and your records have been approved, but your degree has not yet been conferred, you may request a Letter of Qualification. The LOQ will be sent 24-48 hours following receipt of the request.
Diplomas are sent priority mail on degree conferral provided all fees have been paid.
Letter of Completion (LOC)
After your degree has been conferred, an LOC can be sent to graduate schools or employers to verify graduation status. Although an official transcript is the more accepted means of providing this information to others, the College will provide a Letter of Completion upon request. The Letter of Completion will be sent 24-48 hours following the receipt of the request provided all fees owed to the College are paid in full.
You will receive notification via email when your LOQ or LOC request is received and another notification when your LOQ or LOC has been sent.
