Attending the Commencement Ceremony


Commencement is the formal celebration of the degree or certificate you are to receive. It is a time for you to receive well-deserved recognition for your hard work. Since SPC holds the commencement ceremony prior to degrees being awarded, students are considered a candidate for graduation. Participation in the ceremony does not imply or suggest you have met all graduation requirements.

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.
