The College awards diplomas and certificates three times per year in May, August and December. There is only one College Commencement Ceremony per year which is held in May. 

Students are advised to submit an Intent to Graduate form once they have registered for the final courses to complete their degree or certificate requirements.  Please be aware it is the student’s responsibility to apply to graduate in a timely manner.  Once your application has been received and your file is reviewed, you will be contacted via email by the Registrar’s Office regarding your graduation status.  Be sure to check your Qmail student email account often. 

Students who will satisfy their requirements by the end of the spring semester and students who have graduated in August or December of the previous year will be invited to participate in the May Commencement Ceremony. Information regarding the Commencement Ceremony will be sent to graduates via their Qmail student email account mid-April.

Students who have no more than two courses remaining to complete their degree or certificate and plan to register for those remaining requirements during the summer session may participate in the May Commencement Ceremony.  Students will need to submit an Intent to Graduate form for August graduation once they have registered and paid for their summer courses.  Students who are registered in no more than two classes over the summer session will be allowed to participate in the May Commencement Ceremony.
