You will be notified if you are a candidate for graduation at your SPC email address approximately six weeks after the term begins. If you do not receive a notification and think you should graduate at the end of the term, please contact your academic advisor who can perform a graduation check with you.
Graduating from SPC
Graduation means you have officially and successfully completed all of your degree requirements that will be recorded on your official transcript. Our Admissions and Records office will certify your graduation and officially confer your degree after final grades are verified at the end of the term. To be eligible, you must be registered for all classes that are required to complete your degree or certificate in the term. The degree completion will be reflected on the official transcript throughout the processing period.
Students are responsible for determining that all graduation requirements are complete. It is highly recommended that you meet with your advisor prior to your last semester in order to review your records and ensure all graduation requirements will be met.

NOTE: All communication regarding graduation and commencement is sent to your MySPC email account. Be sure to check your SPC email frequently for updates.
