Graduation Application Process and Deadlines

Students should apply the term prior to the term they plan to graduate so that the Graduation Office will have time to communicate with them about courses needed for graduation.

Graduation Application Deadlines

2016 Commencement Ceremony

All students graduating or are pending for graduation for spring semester will have their name, honors, hometown, and major listed in the Commencement Program. Students wishing this information not to be included must email vsilor@jeffersonstate.edu and request their information be excluded. The request must include a signature.

May 6, 2016 for students graduating in August 2015, December 2015, and May 2016. Information about the ceremony will be mailed to graduates by March 15, 2016.

Students may view their graduation status through My JSCC Pipeline on their transcript. Students who have been approved to graduate upon successful completion of their current courses will have "Pending" as their status under Degree/Certificate Awarded near the top of their transcript.

Because seating is limited at the Alabama Theatre, each graduate who pre-registers for the ceremony by April 4, 2016 will be issued up to 5 tickets. You will be able to select how many tickets you will need in the ceremony registration survey. Directions to complete the survey can be found here.

 Depending on the registration, the number of allotted tickets may be lowered at a later time for those who register after April 4, 2016.
