Graduation Information

You should apply for graduation once you have enrolled in the final courses you need for your degree or certificate.

File an application for graduation with the college from which you plan to graduate. Even if you have finished your official program of study, filling out the application for graduation is the only way to ensure you receive your certificate or diploma.

This form informs the college when you will be completing your degree or certificate, and how you would like your name to appear on your diploma or certificate of completion.

If you have met all TSI requirements, degree/certificate and graduation requirements (including up-to-date copies of transcripts from all colleges attended outside the DCCCD), you will be awarded your degree or certificate of completion at the end of the appropriate term.

You must complete 25% of the total credit hours within your degree or certificate at the college awarding the degree or certificate.

For more detailed information about degree and certificate requirements for graduation, see the catalog.

Spring 2020 Graduation Ceremony

Have questions? Contact cvcda@dcccd.edu.

After thorough consideration, DCCCD and its seven colleges have decided to postpone commencement ceremonies for the spring semester until a later date. This change is based on new guidance issued by our nation’s government health officials discouraging large gatherings or events. We know this is not the news you were hoping for. While it is important that we remain optimistic about a return to normal life, it is equally as important that we are realistic about the severity of this pandemic.

Despite the postponed ceremonies, please note that the conferring of degrees and certificates will not be affected, and leadership teams from across the district are reviewing commencement options for later in the year. Based on whatever is decided, spring graduates will have the opportunity to celebrate with family and friends in-person. Once we reach a decision, we will share that information with you.
