Degrees and certificates are not automatically awarded (except Pathway Certificates) to those that complete their program requirements. You must apply to graduate.

Degrees and certificates are awarded at the conclusion of each term. To receive any degree from UCC, you must maintain a 2.00 cumulative grade point average, attend UCC for two terms (including the last), and complete at least 25 percent of the program requirements at UCC.

Second Degree or Certificate

If you are earning a second associate degree, you must complete a minimum of 24 credits in addition to those completed for the first degree. If you are earning a second certificate, you must complete a minimum of 12 credits in addition to those completed for the first certificate. You will only be charged once for the graduation application fee.

Pathway Certificates

UCC automatically awards Pathway Certificates upon completion of requirements at the conclusion of each term. To opt out of an automatic award of a Pathway Certificate, submit a completed Graduation Application Change Request (with the OPT OUT box checked) to the Registrar’s Office in the Laverne Murphy Student Center.

Apply for Graduation

It is your responsibility to apply for graduation to ensure that all requirements are complete.

For June graduates, the application should be submitted by the end of January of the year in which the certificate or degree is to be awarded.

When should I apply for Graduation?

Apply for graduation one full term before the expected completion term. This gives you enough time to make any required adjustments once we evaluate your application.

Example: Graduating spring term – File for graduation in winter term.

What happens after I apply for graduation?

After applying for graduation, you will be invited to walk in the Graduation Ceremony in June. A detailed packet will be mailed to you in May and is available in the student section in Graduation Ceremony.

How long does the evaluation process take?

The evaluation can take up to four weeks. Usually the normal processing time is two weeks depending on the time of the year. Breaks and vacations can alter this time.

When will I receive my actual diploma?

Diplomas are mailed out within six weeks AFTER the completion of the term for all graduating students.

What if my graduation status changes?

If you need to make any changes to your original Graduation Application, fill out a Graduation Application Change Request and return it to the Office of Registration and Records.
