All enrolled dental hygiene students are advised to meet with a faculty advisor at Hemenway Hall regarding their progress toward their degree to ensure that all requirements are met at least two semesters before the scheduled graduation date.
An application for graduation must be submitted with a degree fee to the Cashier’s Office, QLCSS Room 001. This should be processed during the first three weeks of the semester the student intends to graduate.
