Since SPC holds the commencement ceremony prior to degrees being verified, students are considered a candidate for graduation. Participating in the ceremony does not imply or suggest you have met all graduation requirements.

You will not receive a diploma at the commencement ceremony. Degrees are awarded after all graduation requirements are certified. 

Graduation certification is made by Admissions and Records after final grades are verified. Your degree becomes official when it is annotated on your transcript and not by your participation in commencement exercises.

The commencement program is printed prior to the recording of grades for the term. For commencement program purposes only, it is necessary to identify honors designations for graduation candidates based on their all-college cumulative grade point average at the beginning of the term.
