When you are ready to graduate, review the graduation checklist to make sure you've completed all necessary steps.

Have you completed your academic requirements?

KCC offers a computerized degree audit, one of the most helpful ways to measure your readiness to graduate and/or transfer. A degree audit, also called a program evaluation, is a free service from the advisement staff and takes less than five minutes.

Your degree audit report will include the courses you've completed and the courses you still need to graduate. You can request one anytime you are meeting with an advisor. You can also access a degree audit through KCConnect. Choose Program Evaluation from the Student Menu.

2015 Commencement is May 16

The next commencement is May 16, 2015. Petitions must be received by May 6, 2015, to participate in the ceremony. Late petitions will be processed, but participation at commencement cannot be guaranteed. If you have not met the academic requirements and financial obligations, you will receive a letter listing the items that remain unsatisfied.
