Awarding of Degrees and Certificates-Mailing Diplomas

Diplomas, a diploma cover, and a Commencement program are expected to be mailed to the student’s address on file in early Summer 2020, therefore it is very important that your address is correct.

To ensure that your mailing address is correct, please email the Evaluations Office at with your current mailing address by May 22, 2020.

(Summer 2019 and Fall 2019 diplomas that have not yet been picked up will be mailed at this time). If you would prefer to pick up your graduation package in person, once the campus is open, please send a request to the Evaluations Office at: 

This mailing address confirmation is only for your diploma to be mailed. To officially change your address on file, you must fill out an address change form, which can be found on the Admissions and Records webpage, and submit it to the Admissions and Records Office at or you may update your address through your WebAdvisor account.

Note: the diploma timeline is subject to change depending on staff access to the campus during the COVID-19 closure. Students will be notified with updated information as conditions change.

Due to technology constraints, official transcripts may not be processed or evaluated until further notice. However, if your institution offers an electronic service this may be a faster method for us to receive and process official transcripts at this time.

For questions, please email your Evaluator below and we will do our best to respond as quickly as possible.

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 "e-Counseling" 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.


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.
