Graduation Application vs. Commencement

What you need to know.

The Spring semester may have only begun, but for graduating students, time is going to fly by. Here is what you need to know to finish off your time at CCD strong!

Most importantly, the Graduation Application deadline is Feb. 10, 2023. This ensures you receive your diploma and that your degree or certificate appears on your transcripts, which employers often ask for. Apply for graduation here.

Commencement is the celebration of your achievements! Once your Grad App is submitted, CCD will invite students to register for Commencement, so be on the lookout for the sign-up form! The ceremony will be held on May 11, 2023.
