Application for Graduation

Ramapo College seeks to fulfill its mission by providing students with opportunities to investigate and analyze our increasingly interdependent and intercultural world. An emphasis on critical thinking and an awareness of value questions prepares Ramapo College students to become life-long learners. Preparation for a degree from Ramapo College provides the opportunity and structure for students to explore their potential and develop their intellectual goals.

The first-time student will find the emphasis of the Freshman and Sophomore years on General Education course work and the development of writing, critical reading, and mathematical skills. Opportunities for exploring potential majors are provided through selection of options in the Freshman and Sophomore General Education requirements. Second-semester Sophomores and Juniors focus more specifically on the theories and methods of their majors. In the Senior year, integrative studies, fieldwork, and seminars are featured.

The requirements for graduation for each student are those requirements in effect at the date of matriculation. Students transferring course work should refer to the section on Transfer Applicants in this Catalog for information about the applicability of transferred course work for graduation requirements.

A matriculated student who voluntarily interrupts college study at Ramapo College for one semester only may resume study after a single semester’s absence under the graduation requirements that were in effect at the time of matriculation. A matriculated student who voluntarily interrupts college study at Ramapo College for two or more consecutive semesters must apply for readmission to the College and continue studies under the graduation requirements in effect at the time of readmission. Students readmitted in accordance with the Academic Standing policy of the College continue their studies under the graduation requirements in effect at the time of their readmission.
