Commencement Checklist for Students

1. Go to Financial Aid Exit Counseling
Graduating students who have borrowed a Federal Stafford Loan while attending Agnes Scott must complete Stafford Loan Exit Counseling. Students should go to to complete an online Stafford Loan Exit Counseling session. The Office of Financial Aid will be notified automatically once you complete the online session. Please save the confirmation page for your records. 

2. Ensure Registrar Has Received Final Grades
Final grades for graduating seniors are normally posted on ASCAgnes by the Thursday before commencement. All grades, including those from study abroad, cross-registration and transient work, must be received before the registrar can certify you for graduation. The registrar makes every effort to notify candidates who fail to meet graduation requirements prior to the ceremony.
