Coronavirus Resources The campus is closed to the public, however services and instruction are still open and available online and by telephone.
In keeping with our goal of assisting in the efforts to decrease the spread of COVID-19, we will cancel all campus gatherings through June, including commencement. The Colleges in conjunction with division faculty will be working with their Associated Student Government leaders to develop virtual and remote celebrations that will honor your achievement.
Graduation is completing your degree. Commencement is the celebration.
Apply for graduation if you are ready to graduate.
If you expect to complete your program of study by the end of the Spring Semester, you may be eligible to attend the next Commencement Ceremony.
If you previously attended a college that is not part of the State Center Community College District, make sure you have already transferred all coursework to Fresno City College.
Normally, applications for graduation are processed within six (6) to eight (8) weeks. Applications received after the deadline for the current semester will be delayed. At those times, applications will be held until the next semester and you should allow ten (10) to twelve (12) weeks for processing.
Beginning in April, if you are eligible to participate in the Virtual Commencement Ceremony, you will receive an email via your student email account (@my.scccd.edu). Should you have questions about the Virtual commencement Ceremony, email firstname.lastname@example.org from your student email account.
All graduates will receive their diploma or certificate in the mail at the end of the Spring semester. The Virtual Commencement Ceremony is held only once a year, at the end of this Spring Semester. The Certificate, Honors and Commencement Ceremonies are canceled this year due to COVID-19.
If you have not already applied for graduation, you will need to do so before the April 1st deadline for Spring graduation. Reservations for the Virtual Commencement Ceremony and further instructions on attendance will be posted on the Commencement page. It is your responsibility to make your reservations before the RSVP deadlines.
All applications for Graduation or for issuance of your Degree or Certificate must be made online through WebAdvisor. On the WebAdvisor Student Menu, select ‘Graduation Application for Degree/Certificate’ from the ‘Graduation/Commencement’ section.
When applying for graduation, you may note that you have more than one eligible program (Major). If so, choose the major from which you wish to receive your degree or certificate.
If the major from which you wish to receive your degree or certificate is not found, you will need to see counselor to change your major.
Once your correct major is listed, select it and you will be taken to the Application for Graduation screen.
