  • Complete a high school diploma or high school equivalency certificate. This can be exempt for students with 30+ transferable hours.
  • Complete at least 25% of their program at Chatt Tech.
  • Complete the Petition to Graduate form found below. Students that submit their petitions at the beginning of their graduation term are guaranteed a pre-audit of their program of study prior to the end of the term.

A student’s academic record will be evaluated by the Record’s Office graduation team for any and all credentials earned to determine if graduation requirements have been met. If a student’s enrollment has not been continuous since initial matriculation to the college, his/her record will be evaluated for graduation based on the catalog in effect at the time of readmission.
