Priority Deadlines

Due to staffing shortages, the Credentials Office is experiencing a critical backlog in graduation application processing. Please allow extra time for your graduation application to be processed and diploma to be mailed. Thank you for your patience as we work to process applications as quickly as possible.


You can apply for graduation directly through ctcLink. You can find instructions on how to do so here. If you have questions about your graduation eligibility, meet with your advisor or faculty coordinator, by appointment.

Processing graduation applications begins 4 business days after final grades have been posted for the end of the quarter. Students can expect to see their degree/certificate awarded on their transcript within 5 weeks and to receive their mailed diploma within 10 to 12 weeks.

The graduation application submission deadlines are listed below. If you miss an open graduation application term, you must apply for the following term during the open date range.
