Graduation

Graduation Application Deadlines

Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT):

For Spring 2017 CSU Applicants (application period August 1 - 31, 2016):  To ensure sufficient processing time for CSU E-Verification, it is highly recommended to apply for the ADT Degree by October 1, 2016.  Final application deadline is October 14, 2016.

Associate Degrees & Certificates (Non-ADTs):

Fall 2016:                       Apply by October 14, 2016

Graduation is as Easy as 1-2-3

To apply for graduation:
  1. Make sure all official transcripts (if applicable) from outside institutions you have previously attended are submitted to Admissions and Records.
  2. Check your graduation status with a counselor to ensure you meet all of your graduation requirements. Contact the Counseling Center to make an appointment, or use "Ask a Counselor" to verify you meet all graduation requirements.
  3. Submit your application for graduation to the Admissions & Records office before the deadline dates listed above. The earlier the better!

Graduation Evaluations

Grades are processed and finalized by the Admissions & Records office approximately 2-3 weeks after the semester officially ends. At that time, your evaluation will be updated. If you have met all of the stated requirements, your degree and/or certificate will be posted to your transcript record.

What if I'm Not Ready to Graduate?

If you do not have all required course(s) either completed or in progress by the drop deadline of the semester in which you apply for graduation, you will be notified by mail that your request for graduation has been deleted and you will have to reapply in a future semester. All application and drop deadlines are listed in the class schedule and college catalog, as well as the college web site.

Diplomas

Approximately 4-6 weeks after the completion of the semester, you will be notified that your diploma is available to be picked up in the Admissions & Records office. NOTE: Please make sure the Admissions and Records Office has a current e-mail and mailing address. An Address Change form may be found on the Admissions & Records homepage, or may be completed in person, prior to the completion of the semester.

If you have moved outside the San Diego County Area we will mail your diploma to you upon written request to the Evaluations Office with the following information: Full Name; Student Identification Number; Date of Birth; Mailing Address to send the diploma; Full Signature.

Commencement Ceremony

Each year, at the completion of the spring semester, the commencement ceremony is held on campus. Please visit the Commencement page for more information.
