Students who will be completing their degree requirements during fall 2018 must submit a petition for graduation by September 15, 2018. All graduation petitions must be completed and returned to the registrar’s office (C120).

Even if you do not plan on participating in the formal commencement ceremony, you must still submit a graduation petition to complete your degree or certificate program. You will not be considered an NSCC graduate until the petition has been received and approved by the registrar’s office.

Graduation Requirements
The associate degree is awarded upon the successful completion of any of the two-year programs. A certificate is awarded upon the successful completion of any of the one-year certificate programs (30 credit hours or more). Download the graduation petition.

For short-term certificates (29 credit hours or less), please see your division dean for completion recognition. No graduation petition is required.
