Applications are available for South Plains College students who have met the requirements to graduate in December.
Students who are planning to graduate in December need to check with their academic advisor or an advisor at the Advising Center on campus.
“[Students] need to check with their advisors to verify the completion of this semester,” says Robin Coler, graduation clerk at SPC.
To be eligible to graduate, a student must have a 2.0 grade-point average or better and have finished all degree requirements by December. Students also need to complete the online graduation application through their MySPC account. The deadline for applying for graduation is Nov 17.
To complete the application, students must sign in to their MySPC account, click on ‘Students’ tab, then ‘Admissions and Records,’ on the left-hand side, and then click on the ‘Student Forms and Tools’ tab. There will be a blue link named ‘Application for Graduation’ in the middle of the screen.
Students can choose whether to receive their diploma in December or participate in the spring ceremony. Students will be receiving their diploma in the mail if they choose not to participate in the spring ceremony, which will be held on May 12.
“[Students] can choose if they want to walk,” says Coler, “and if they do want to walk, they just need to indicate ‘yes’ on the application.”
Received applications take around six to eight weeks after the winter break to be approved. Once approved, the applicant will be notified.
For help, students may contact their program advisor or go to the Administration Building and see an advisor at the Advising Center, or contact Coler in the Admissions and Records Office.
