Curriculum Graduation

Applying for Graduation


  • SUMMER – July 8, 2016
  • FALL 2016 – November 18, 2016
  • SPRING 2017 – March 8, 2017


Applications for Graduation are completed with your advisor.

A separate Application for Graduation is required for each degree/diploma/certificate.

Completed Applications for Graduation are due in the Office of Admissions and Records by the published deadline. Applications received after the deadline will be processed for the next semester.

Graduation Fee

There is no graduation fee.

There is a charge for caps and gowns for students walking in the Spring ceremony.

Walking in the Spring Ceremony

There is one graduation ceremony each year in May for (previous year) Summer and Fall graduates and current Spring candidates for graduation.

Students must indicate on the Application for Graduation if they plan to walk in the Spring ceremony.

Students who indicate they will walk in the Spring ceremony will receive a letter with information about Graduation Rehearsal and the Graduation Ceremony.

Due to our growing number of graduates, and in order to ensure that graduates will be able to invite as many guests as possible, this year there will be two graduation ceremonies held on graduation day.

10 a.m. ceremony, May 11         Arts & Sciences and Allied Health & Public Services

4 p.m.   ceremony, May 11         Applied Tech, Business & Computer Tech & Public Safety

Cap and Gown

Cap and gown must be ordered from the WCC Bookstore by the graduation application deadline.

Graduation Rehearsal

Tuesday, May 9, 2017

10 – 11:30 am

Moffatt Auditorium

Guest Tickets

Each graduate who indicates that they will be walking in the Spring ceremony will receive guest tickets at Graduation Rehearsal.  The number of guest tickets will be determined by the space available in the facility and the number of graduates who will be walking.  Our hope is to have at least 6 tickets per graduate.  (Previous years, graduates were given 4 guest tickets each.  Without splitting into two ceremonies, we would have had to go down to 3 guest tickets each.)
