The term in which you will have officially and successfully complete all of your graduation requirements.  You must apply for the term (fall, spring, summer) in which you plan to graduate through MySFCC (student portal).  Once final grades are posted, your record will be evaluated and your diploma will be sent to you via mail to the address on file.

Graduation and diplomas are processed by the Registrar’s Office.


Often referred to as “Graduation”, the commencement ceremony is just that, a ceremony. It is an end of the term celebration for students projected to successfully complete all of their graduation requirements by the end of that semester.

You will not receive a diploma at the commencement ceremony.  Confirmation of degree completion will not take place until official grades are posted.  It is highly recommended that you meet with your academic advisory prior to your last semester in order to review your records and ensure all graduation requirements will be met. Students should also review their degree audit by visiting their MySFCC (student portal) and selecting Degree Evaluation.
