Congratulations as you near completion of your degree requirements!

All students planning to earn a diploma, certificate, or degree must complete an Application for Degree/Certificate in advance of requirement completion. You may be taking coursework during the term you plan to graduate, but any course substitutions or transfer credits should be in place and approved.
Attending ceremonies are choices you can make later, but you must at least apply by the deadlines below to earn your specialized credit diploma, certificate or degree(s). 

Graduation forms may be obtained by visiting the Registration/Student Records Office or any LCCC site location, and are also available below.

There are three graduations each year, a commencement ceremony (with cap and gown) in May; and recognition ceremonies in August and December (where graduates wear a sash).
