Congratulations! You’ve worked hard to get here and now it’s time to confirm your eligibility.

What you’ll need to know:

  • TJC awards degrees and certificates three times a year—May, August and December
  • We normally offer two commencement ceremonies—Spring and Fall. 
  • You can confirm your eligibility online at any time, 365 days a year!

Get your Diploma

TJC doesn’t automatically award degrees and certificates so once you’ve finished your official degree plan, please fill out the quick and easy graduation confirmation form.

  • Final date to apply and walk the stage in the May ceremony: March 26, 2021
  • Final date to apply and receive your diploma for the Spring term: May 6, 2021

Participate in the Commencement Ceremony

If you want to “walk” in the commencement ceremony, you can let us know on your graduation confirmation form. Please be aware that the deadline to participate in one of our ceremonies is earlier than the general graduation confirmation deadlines.

  • The Commencement Ceremonies for Spring 2021 will be held on May 10 & 11. You will be contacted by email from the TJC Registrar's Office to confirm your time slot. 

Diplomas will be mailed a few weeks after the end of the term. 

General Graduation Requirements for all Degrees, Certificates or Awards

The following general requirements must be met by all students receiving associate degrees, certificates, or awards:

  • Confirm your graduation
  • Complete the required credit hours with an average grade of at least “C” (2.0 cumulative GPA).
  • At least 25 percent of your semester credit hours must be earned at TJC.
  • Satisfy all Texas Success Initiative (TSI) requirements, if your degree or certificate requires it.

Victory Lap 2021

See the full gallery of photos from our 2021 Victory Lap graduate parade!

TJC kicked off celebrations of its 2021 spring graduates with a “Victory Lap” through the TJC main campus. Faculty, staff, family and friends cheered the graduates from the sidewalks along the route. The Victory Lap was first held in 2020 when COVID-19 forced graduation ceremonies to be limited, and due to its popularity, the Victory Lap has become part of TJC graduation traditions.
