Graduation | Commencement 2017

Graduation photos

Graduates who walked in the 2016 Commencement will soon be seeing an e-mail from, the company that provided photography of our event. They will provide a link for you to view the photos they took once they post them. If you don't hear from them in the next week or two, please contact them through their web site.

Graduation at Peninsula College is a three-step process consisting of:

  1. Submitting an Degree/Graduation Application form.
  2. Completing all academic requirements for your degree.
  3. Settling all financial obligations.

If you have not filled out the Degree/Graduation Application, please do so immediately or contact your student advisor with any questions.

Individuals should apply for graduation one quarter in advance of the quarter they anticipate graduating. The Degree/Graduation Application, with any approved substitutions signed by a program advisor, should be submitted online or returned to Student Services as soon as possible in the quarter. Student Services will perform a final review authorizing graduation or pointing out any deficiencies that must be overcome.
