Nondegree status students include military specials, audit students, degree unclassified students, provisional limited students, probationary students, and all other catergories of noncontinuing status students. Check the Academic Calendar for deadline dates to apply for your degree.

Graduation Application Process
The Associate Degree application must be completed at the beginning of the semester the student wishes to receive the degree, in the Office of Records and Registration. The application must be return by the deadline date published on the Academic Calendar. Once an official evaluation has been completed at the end of the semester, the diploma will be mailed to the student approximately six to eight weeks after the end of the semester in which the student has applied for the degree.
Graduation with honors will be based on the cumulative GPA calculated on the basis of all work in the student's college career, including any attempted at other institutions. The calculation will include all courses attempted, not just those submitted in fulfillment of graduation requirements. Transfer students who apply to graduate with honors, in addition to their overall record, must show a GPA at USC that meets the level specified for the honors being sought. To graduate with honors, a student must have earned at least 60 credit hours applicable toward the degree in residence at the University, 30 credit hours for an associate's degree. Courses taken by a transient student at other institutions, by correspondence, by examination, or by exemption are not considered "in residence." The following designations indicate a consistently high level of academic achievement throughout the student's entire academic career.

Highest Honors - a cumulative GPA of 4.000
High Honors - a cumulative GPA of 3.750-3.999
Honors - a cumulative GPA of 3.500 - 3.749
