A SPECIAL NOTE FOR THOSE WORKING TOWARD COMMISSIONER DEGREES
Not everyone who attends College of Commissioner Science courses wants to work toward the Bachelor, Master, and Doctor degrees. For this reason, degrees are not automatically awards when the requirements are met. Therefore, those wanting to earn degrees must notify us when they believe they have completed the requirements so that the degree registrar can review their progress and approve the awarding of a degree. This process is called petitioning for a degree and is described in link #2d above. Degree requirements can be found in link #2c above.
Please follow the steps outlined above as soon as you believe that you have completed requirements to allow time for reviewing your information and obtaining any additional information needed to approve your petition.
