Apply for Graduation

Students who anticipate meeting certificate/degree requirements by the end of a term need to submit a graduation application for the certificate/degree in WebAdvisor by the stated deadline for that term. Failure to apply before the final deadline will delay the granting of the degree to the end of the next term.

How to submit a Graduation Application

Visit your WebAdvisor Student Menu and select ‘Clovis Community College – Graduation Application for Degree/Certificate.’ Continue through each screen until you have successfully submitted your application for each degree and certificate you are eligible to earn.

 How to Apply for Your Degree/Certificate 

If you do not see the certificate and/or degree program you intend to apply for in WebAdvisor, drop in to meet with a counselor to obtain assistance with adding the program and to review your certificate/degree progress.

If you completed coursework at another college or have Advanced Placement or other exam credit that you would like to be considered in the evaluation of your certificate/degree at CCC, you must provide an official transcript and/or an official exam score reports prior to being evaluated for the certificate/degree.

Your graduation application will be processed at the end of the term once final grades have been posted. If it is determined that you have not completed all requirements to earn the certificate/degree you applied for, you will be contacted by the Evaluations Office through your SCCCD student email.
