How to Graduate

Mendocino College has a formal graduation ceremony once a year (at the end of the spring semester), but a student may petition to graduate at the end of fall, spring, or summer terms.  Please review the Academic Calendar for application deadlines.

To receive an Associate in Arts, Associate in Science degree or Certificate of Achievement, a student is required to submit an application for graduation through one of the following methods.

Online Graduation Application

Applications for graduation can be submitted through WebAdvisor.  Simply log into your WebAdvisor account and follow these directions.  A confirmation email will be sent once the application is successfully submitted. 

Paper Graduation Application

1.  Print the “Petition to Graduate” and complete the shaded section.
2.  Make an appointment with your counselor to have an exit interview or transcript review.
3.  Meet with your counselor.  At that time s/he will help you complete the Petition to Graduate and will make sure you are ready. 
4.  Completed applications are submitted to the Office of Admissions and Records for processing.

Graduating Student Survey 

Though not required, it is requested that all graduating students complete the Graduating Student Survey so that the College can better serve future students.  The password to access the survey is Grad15.
