Students who wish to earn a Certificate of Achievement or Associate Degree must submit a Petition to Graduate to the Admissions & Records Office by the established deadlines. Students are encouraged to submit a petition once they have completed a minimum of 30.0 semester units of coursework. Students should make an appointment to see their counselor at least one semester before petitioning to graduate. 

 

Official transfer transcripts from other institutions must also be on file in the Admissions & Records Office before submitting the Petition to Graduate. An evaluation will not be completed or certificate/degree will be released until all financial obligations to the District have been met. 

You may request a duplicate diploma or certificate of achievement by submitting the Duplicate Diploma Request form. A charge of $20.00 per Diploma/Certificate must be paid prior to the diploma/certificate being produced.
