Graduation Requirements 

Graduation Requirements

The following are minimum requirements for graduation:

  1. Complete and pass all coursework as determined by the student’s specific program.
  2. Comply with program guidelines regarding the maximum allowable transfer hours from other institutions.
  3. Earn the grade point average (GPA) required by the student’s specific program.
  4. Complete and pass a Bible course as required by the student’s specific program.
  5. File a “Request for Degree” form and a signed degree evaluation audit with the program office at the beginning of the final term.*
  6. Fulfill all financial obligations to the university.
  7. Be recommended for graduation by the specific program/college.

*Note: When students apply for graduation, which should occur prior to the beginning of the final term, the student should meet with the adviser to complete and sign the graduation audit. Signatures of the student, adviser, and registrar should be obtained, and the student should submit the signed graduation audit and the application for graduation to the Office of the Registrar. The signed graduation audit will be used by the Registrar as a checklist to assist with the verification of the student’s graduation requirements. Lack of knowledge or incorrect interpretation of University policies and regulations does not remove the student from the obligation to satisfy all requirements for a degree. The student bears the ultimate responsibility for completing a degree program. Information on how to generate a degree audit may be found at

For purposes of minimum requirements for graduation, a graduate student may use any one catalog from the date of initial enrollment in the University up to and including the year of graduation from Harding. However, a graduate student may NOT so use a catalog that is more than eight years old at the time of the student’s graduation. Please note that accrediting agencies or licensure requirements may mandate changes, necessitating program modifications. Students are encouraged to stay current with such changes and should consult with their advisors. The student bears the ultimate responsibility for completing a degree program.
