To be awarded a degree or certificate you need to turn in a graduation application to the Registration & Student Records office in Laidlaw Center 102. Hard copies of the graduation application can be picked up in our office, as well as Entry & Advising in Laidlaw Center 116.

Submit your application after you have registered for the quarter prior to the quarter you plan to graduate. The deadline for submitting your application, however, is the last day of the third week of the quarter prior to the quarter you plan to complete your requirements. Because your educational plans may change, applications more than one quarter out cannot be accepted. For example, if you plan to graduate in spring then your application should be submitted after you register for winter quarter classes, but not later than the end of the third week of winter quarter. Check the Registration Calendar for the specific date your application is due by or refer to the chart below. Applications are accepted after the deadline but you may not receive your evaluation in time to adjust your final quarter schedule.

We strongly encourage you to send your application to us by the deadline so that you can be sure that you are completing all of the requirements before registration begins. This will give you a chance to adjust your schedule in the event you are missing a requirement.

After your application is reviewed by the graduation department the results are mailed to your address found on MyWCC. Please visit the My Account section on MyWCC to ensure your information is correct or update your address if needed.
