Commencement and Graduation Deadlines – Associate Vice President for Student Success, March 26, 2020

Dear SFCC Family,

It is with a heavy heart to announce that our Spring 2020 commencement exercises will be postponed until a further date.  We are working to determine how and when to reschedule the event and will provide more information as soon as possible.  We understand how disappointing this information is to our students, faculty and staff but we guarantee we will celebrate the class of 2020 soon.

To further assist our students as we are working through the various changes due to the national pandemic, we have also extended the deadline for students to petition to graduate to May 15, 2020.  Students who are eligible to graduate and who fulfill their academic requirements by the end of Spring 2020 will graduate and will receive their diploma.

Your health, safety, and educational journey are important to us.  We celebrate you and your accomplishments and cannot wait to have you back on campus and celebrate your accomplishments in person!  Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through these processes.

Stay Well,


Thomasinia Ortiz-Gallegos

Associate Vice President for Student Success

The best way to apply to graduate is by going into your student portal and apply on line.  Go to MySFCC; click on Forms and Documents; Under Registrar heading, click on Petition to Graduate.  Complete the document and submit.
