Petition to Graduate

Graduating Students – Your achievements are very important to us. In collaboration with the Academic Counseling Office, we are now accepting the Petition to Graduate through the Counseling website. No appointment required. Simply submit the online form and a Counselor will review your information and submit your information to the Admissions & Records Office on your behalf. If you have already submitted a petition through your academic counselor, you do not need to submit another request.

the Virtual Recognition Ceremony

Commencement Ceremony

The LACCD Virtual Graduation Celebration will happen on June 9, 2020. Students who submit a Petition to Graduate by May 14 will be invited to participate in the celebration. Students who do not petition by May 14 will still be processed but their name will not be mentioned as a graduation honoree during the virtual celebration. We hope to be able to host an in-person celebration in some form once we are safely able to do so. Keep an eye on your email for updates. 

Please note: Participation in the graduation celebration or ceremony does not guarantee the degree will be awarded. You will be invited to the ceremony based on your petition submission. Your educational coursework will be evaluated by an academic counselor and a graduation evaluator to determine if you have earned the credits required to grant the requested degree. 

External Transcripts

Students must have final official transcripts from all colleges outisde the LACCD, AP scores, and high school transcripts to be used toward the degree on file by July 30 for the transcript to be processed and reviewed for Spring graduation. If transcripts are received after the deadline, it may delay the posting of your degree to the next term. 

Posting Degrees

Once the semester has ended and all final grades for all classses have been received, the Gradaution Office will begin evaluating final grades and posting degrees. Once your degree is posted, you will be able to see it online in the student portal at the top of the transcript. Graduation Office has a deadline of August 15 to post all degrees. After August 15, the Graduation Office will print and mail diplomas. Student can expect diplomas in September.
