Graduation is not automatic upon completion of requirements. Students who expect to receive an Associate Degree or Certificate of Achievement should file a Petition for Graduation form by the deadline for the semester of expected graduation.

* Note that 12 units required for the Associate Degree must be completed at the college granting the degree. Six of the 12 units must be in the major.

The Petition for Graduation form may be completed online at

Once the petition is submitted, an evaluation of all coursework will be completed. All transcripts from other colleges attended must be on file prior to submitting the petition. The evaluation shows all requirements for graduation and the courses you have taken to fulfill those requirements. Any outstanding requirements are indicated and must be completed before the Associate Degree or Certificate of Achievement will be awarded.

Completion of a Degree or Certificate is posted on the official transcript within six weeks of the end of the semester.

Diplomas are mailed to the address on file with the college within eight weeks of the end of the semester by a third party vendor.
