Students automatically graduate at the next available graduation date from any associate of applied science degrees, technical diplomas or advanced technical certificates for which they have completed all program and graduation requirements. Graduation is processed at the end of each semester, and the graduation dates are the last day of classes for the summer, fall and spring semesters.
Certificates are automatically awarded to students at the semesters end in which all certificate courses have been completed and awarding requirements met. The date earned will be the last day of classes for the Summer, Fall and Spring semesters.
Diplomas & Certificates
Diplomas are mailed to graduates using the mailing address on file with the college. Please be sure your contact information is up to date by logging into My Gateway and confirming, or visiting a Student Services Center location. Diplomas are mailed six to eight weeks after the last day of classes for a term. However, official transcripts showing degree conferred and date awarded are available approximately two weeks after the last day of classes.
