Commencement is the formal celebration of the degree or certificate you are to receive. Since SPC holds the commencement ceremony prior to degrees being verified, students are considered a candidate for graduation. Participation in the ceremony does not imply or suggest you have met all graduation requirements.
Students who are candidates for fall are eligible to participate in the commencement ceremony. Please review your personalized advising report in MySPC, by clicking on ‘View My Advisement Report
' to determine if you will graduate at the end of fall term.
NOTE: If you register for the spring 2019 term, keep in mind your Advisement Report will include the spring hours in your totals.
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 for the fall 2018 term.
All communication regarding graduation
and commencement will be sent to your MySPC email account, therefore; be sure to check it frequently for updates.

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.
You will not receive a diploma at the commencement ceremony. Degrees are awarded after all graduation requirements are certified.
Admissions and Records certifies your graduation 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 official diploma or certificate will be printed and mailed 3-4 weeks after commencement to the current mailing address on file. To ensure delivery, make sure your address is updated and accurate since that is the address your diploma will be sent. Verify your current mailing address through MySPC.
