Applying for Graduation

TCC automatically graduates students who meet graduation requirements and have a valid program of study on record.

However, you are encouraged to submit the Graduation Interest Form, located in the Graduation Overview area of MyTCCTrack.

Submitting this form ensures the correct name is printed on your diploma and that the correct address is on file for us to mail you your diploma. Learn more about diplomas.

You must submit the form during the same term in which you will meet all degree/certificate requirements. Graduation processing occurs at the end of every term. During these processing times, the form will be unavailable for submission.

You should submit this form even if you do not plan to participate in the annual commencement ceremony.
