A Certificate of Completion is a statement of degree completion generated by the Registrar's Office. It is considered just as official as a final transcript or diploma.
Students may Request a Certificate of Completion to verify graduation status to employers and graduate schools during the 8-10 week gap between the end of a term and the posting of final degrees to transcripts, and the 3-4 month gap until diplomas are issued.
Students waiting for transfer work or incomplete grades to be posted cannot receive a certificate.
The certificate is a statement of degree completion, not a transcript, and thus does not list grades, courses, or GPA.
