In order to graduate from Relay (Relay’s graduation requirements), earn a master's degree (or, in non-degree-seeking programs, complete the program), and be eligible for the next level of certification (when appropriate), students must complete all academic and program requirements. This includes satisfying state requirements (e.g., credit deficiencies, workshops, etc.).
In order to walk in the graduation ceremony and have one’s name listed in the ceremony program, students must successfully complete the Relay academic and program requirements and pay all outstanding balances due to Relay at least three weeks prior to the graduation ceremony. If students have satisfied academic and program requirements, and the only outstanding financial requirement is releasing their AmeriCorps award to Relay, students may walk in the graduation ceremony.
Official proof of graduation, including transcripts and diplomas, will be held if students have an outstanding balance due to Relay.
