Students from Other Institutions

Students enrolled at another college who are still seeking a degree at CCC must have acceptable credits transferred to CCC and apply for graduation in order for the degree to be awarded. When the necessary credits have been transferred to CCC, application for graduation has been submitted, and the graduation fee paid, the degree may be awarded.


Honors are awarded on associate degrees only. You must complete 30 credit hours of non-developmental courses at CCC with a cumulative grade point average of 3.5. Cumulative grade point averages to determine honors will be calculated at the end of the semester in which you complete degree requirements. Tentative honors for graduation ceremonies will be determined based on your last semester attended at CCC prior to degree completion.

You will graduate in the semester in which you meet all graduation requirements, even if there is no commencement ceremony. You can choose to participate in the spring ceremony if you graduate in the fall or plan to graduate in the summer of a particular year.

Important Note: Your diploma or certificate will be mailed to you at the address provided on the graduation application 5 to 10 days after the end of the semester you graduate.
