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.
