If you are completing your degree requirements this semester, don’t forget to get your application for graduation in on time.
Applications for May graduation are currently available to students who have met all requirements. The deadline for applications is March 8.
Students who are not sure if they are eligible should contact their program advisor.
To be eligible to graduate, a student must have at least a 2.0 grade-point average or better, and have finished all degree requirements.
If a student is receiving a certificate and an associate’s degree, he or she must make sure to apply for each, separately.
Students who are completing an associate’s degree need to make sure that they are TSI compliant and have completed all of their course work. Once those requirements have been met, students can go online and fill out the free online graduation application.
To complete the application, students must sign in to their MySPC account, click on the ‘Students’ tab, and then ‘Admissions and Records.’ On the left- hand side, click on the ‘Forms and Tools’ link, and there will be a blue link with the graduation application attached.
When the application is turned in, administrators will put it under review after final grades are posted.
Students who are approved to graduate will participate in the spring graduation ceremony that will be held on May 12. If a student is not able to participate in the graduation ceremony, he or she has to be excused and given permission to graduate in absentia.
For help, students can contact their program advisor, or go to the Student Services Building and see Robin Coler, the graduation clerk, in the Admissions and Records Office.
