Graduation Requirements

In addition to other graduation requirements, you must complete within five (5) years the course requirements for your degree or certificate as outlined in the catalog in effect at the time of your entrance to the college. You may have the option to select a more recent catalog year, provided the requisite courses are still offered and the degree/certificate requirements are met within five (5) years of the catalog year selected.

Twenty-five percent (25%) of the total credit hours for your degree/certificate must be completed in residence at the college awarding the degree/certificate.

To qualify for a second degree or certificate, you must fulfill the twenty-five percent (25%) residence requirement and must complete all required courses in the curriculum plan for the second degree or certificate.

The college reserves the right to modify or make changes in degree or certificate curricula as appropriate. You, the student, have the ultimate responsibility to select and register for courses to complete your degree or certificate and meeting graduation requirements.

Students should apply for graduation by contacting their campus Registrar's office 2 - 3 months prior to the anticipated commencement ceremony date. Students who have met all TSI, degree/certificate, and graduation requirements will be awarded their degree or certificate of completion.

Official transcripts from all colleges attended outside of DCCCD must be on file before graduation application can be processed.
