You will be notified if you are a candidate for graduation at both your SPC and personal email addresses within six weeks after the term starts. Should you not receive a notification within six weeks and think you should graduate at the end of the term, contact your academic advisor who can perform a graduation check with you.


    Graduation refers to the term in which you have officially and successfully completed all of your degree requirements and recorded on the official transcript. To be eligible to graduate, you must be registered for all classes that are required to complete your degree or certificate. Admissions and Records will certify your graduation and officially confer your degree after final grades are verified at the end of the term.

    You will automatically be evaluated for the program you are currently pursuing and any degree or certificate embedded within that program. If you believe you meet the requirements for a degree or certificate outside of your program, please contact us at graduationquestions@spcollege.edu
