Am I ready to graduate?
Candidates for graduation must complete a Graduation Application with the Record’s Office by February 15th (Spring and Summer) or December 15th (Fall). Please note, information is needed for the spring commencement by the February 15th deadline. However, it is the student’s responsibility to complete the necessary steps to apply for graduation. If a student misses the deadline, applications for that semester will be accepted until the last day of class that semester but participation in spring commencement may not be possible.

The Graduation Application also requires the following steps to be completed:

  1. Print a Graduation Application.
  2. Note: Program requirements must show in process for all requirements unless the coursework is completed at another institution. If intending to transfer a course back, please indicate the course and the institution the requirement is being completed. An official transcript must be received within 30 days of the last day of NWCCD courses.
  3. Return the Graduation Application to the Record’s Office.
