Academic Counseling

Graduation Petition


  • If you have attended other regionally accredited colleges outside the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) and need to use coursework toward an associate degree, certificate of achievement or CSUGE/IGETC certification, official transcripts must be on file with our College. This also applies to any coursework taken within our District prior to spring 1974. Transcripts from other institutions must be mailed directly to the Admissions & Records Office.
  • If you intend to use courses from colleges outside of our LACCD, you should make an appointment with a counselor for a transcript evaluation and develop an educational plan to determine which courses can be used towards your degree or certification. 
  • Check currently evaluated courses in our TES database.

Please log in to PeopleSoft Student Portal and answer the questions regarding your readiness or completeness to submit for the degree or certificate of achievement.

Once in PeopleSoft, go to Academics menu > My Academics > Petition for Graduation


Click on Apply for Graduation and verify your academic program, degree and/or certificate are correct. Should you need assistance ask your counselor. 

  • If you are applying for an Associate Degree for Transfer (AA-T or AS-T), you must see a counselor to petition on your behalf.
  • You will be notified of your degree/certificate status before the end of the semester or term in which the application is filed.
  • Your name will appear on the degree or certificate as it appears on our current records. Please go to the Admissions & Records to update any personal information changes such as name, address, etc.
