    Graduation
    Graduation means you have officially and successfully completed all of your degree requirements that will be recorded on your official transcript. Our Admissions and Records office will certify your graduation and officially confer your degree after final grades are verified at the end of the term. To be eligible, you must be registered for all classes that are required to complete your degree or certificate in the term. The degree completion will be reflected on the official transcript throughout the processing period.

    Final responsibility for meeting graduation requirements rests with you, the student.

    There is no need to apply for graduation. You will automatically be evaluated for the program you are currently pursuing and any degree or certificate embedded within that program.

    Students are responsible for determining that all graduation requirements are complete. It is highly recommended that you meet with your Academic Advisor prior to your last semester in order to review your records and ensure all graduation requirements will be met.

    Please review your progress by logging into MySPC. Under My Academic Status, select the option ‘View My Advisement Report’ to check your status. If you have any questions about graduation requirements, contact an advisor who can perform a graduation check with you to determine if you are eligible to graduate.
