After You Apply

Graduates should continue to work with their specific academic advisor. They will work with you to ensure you are on track to meet graduation requirements. The Registrar’s Office will conduct an audit during the graduation term listed on your application and will inform you of any remaining requirements through your college e-mail.

Students are eligible to apply for graduation if they meet the minimum criteria (refer to catalog for complete requirements):

Must have a minimum degree-program adjusted SLCC cumulative GPA of 2.0

Definition: The degree-program adjusted grade point average is based on grades on all courses (adjusted for repeats) that are applied to a degree to meet graduation requirements at SLCC. The courses included may be from both transfer work and SLCC or only SLCC.
