Deadline to petition for graduation quickly approaching

Saddleback College students wishing to graduate in May must petition for graduation by March 1. It is a student’s responsibility to file if he or she is seeking an associate’s degree or a certificate of achievement or occupational skills award.

This year’s commencement ceremony will be May 20.

Students submitting petitions by the deadline date will be entitled to have a graduation date for that semester posted on their transcripts. Petitions received after the deadline will be processed with those for the following semester and the graduation date posted on the transcript will be for that following semester.

All official transcripts of previous college work must be on file in the Office of Admissions and Records before applying for a degree or certificate.
