Graduation Information

Graduation Candidates

The Admissions and Records Office will automatically review your progress toward the completion of your degree for the degree that you have currently declared. We highly recommend that you meet with an Academic Advisor prior to your last semester in order to review your records and ensure all graduation requirements will be met.

You will receive an email (sent to your TMCC and/or personal email address), approximately 4–6 weeks after the beginning of the semester indicating your eligibility to graduate. You will have the opportunity to “opt out” of the auto-grad process if you do NOT wish to receive your degree in the current semester. If you do not receive the auto-grad email and feel that you should be eligible to graduate with your declared degree, please contact Academic Advising to request a Grad Check appointment.

Note: If your Academic Advising Report (AAR) indicates that you have "Satisfied" the requirements to receive your declared degree, then you do not need to apply for graduation for your declared degree.

Graduation Applicants

The following information is for students who wish to apply for graduation for a degree other than what he/she declared, TMCC High School Students in their Senior year, for students that will be completing the requirements to receive their degree in the Summer Semester, or for students whose AAR is not satisfied for their Declared degree and who have spoken to their Advisor.

Students who would like to apply to graduate with a degree that is NOT their declared degree and/or students who will complete the requirements to receive a degree in the Summer Semester may submit a separate application for graduation for each degree or certificate of achievement they may earn. Students may earn multiple degrees/certificates subsequently or simultaneously, provided that they satisfy the requirements for each degree.

Summer Graduation Applicants: Students who will complete their requirements to graduate and receive their degrees in the Summer session MUST complete the online graduation application by the April 1 deadline if you want your name and degree information included in the Commencement program.
