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.
You will be notified if you are a candidate for graduation in fall 2018 at your SPC email address approximately six weeks after the term begins. You should verify your status by checking your Advisement Report or contacting an academic advisor. If you do not receive a notification and think you should graduate at the end of the term, please contact your academic advisor who can perform a graduation check with you.
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.
While earning a college degree or certificate from SPC is an accomplishment worth celebrating, attendance at the official commencement ceremony is optional. Walking across the stage in your cap and gown, however, does not imply or suggest you have met graduation requirements. In order to graduate, you must satisfy all degree requirements.
Conferring of degrees and certificates may take up to three weeks to complete. Diplomas will be mailed after all degrees and certificates are finalized.
