Graduation & Commencement

Applying for a Degree or Certificate of Achievement

Students completing degree or certificate of achievement requirements should submit a petition by the 30 percent deadline of their final semester or session. Petition deadlines are:

  • Fall 2022: September 26, 2022
  • Spring 2023: February 27, 2023

Official transcripts from all colleges attended (or concurrently attending), approved substitutions, waivers, and external exam reports (AP/IB/CLEP) must be on file in the Admissions and Records Office before submitting a petition for a degree or certificate of achievement. Petitions submitted after the deadline are automatically processed in the subsequent semester.

Commencement

The MiraCosta College commencement ceremony is held once a year near the end of May. Fall graduates, spring candidates, and summer candidates are eligible to participate in the commencement ceremony provided they submit a graduation petition for a degree or certificate. Students who are eligible to attend the ceremony will receive information about participating from the Student Life and Leadership Office in March.
