Apply for Graduation

Why do I have to fill this out?

TJC does not automatically award diplomas or certificates. Even if you have finished your official degree plan, you will not receive a diploma or certificate unless you fill out the graduation application.

When should I apply for graduation?

You should apply for graduation once you have enrolled in the final semester you need for your degree or certificate. 

What if I want to attend the commencement ceremony?

A formal graduation ceremony is held at the close of the regular Spring and Fall semesters, but it is not required. If you wish to attend, please fill out the application before the deadline. Graduation applications filed after the deadline will still be honored, but you will need to attend the graduation commencement ceremony the following semester.
