Graduation & Commencement

Graduation

Graduation means being awarded a state-approved certificate or degree once all of the requirements for that degree/certificate have been successfully completed. 

Commencement

Commencement is a ceremony in which students have the opportunity to celebrate their academic accomplishments. Skagit Valley College holds commencement ceremonies at the end of spring quarter each year at the Mount Vernon and Whidbey Island Campuses, as well as the San Juan Center. Participation in commencement does not mean that a student has satisfied all courses required to graduate with a degree or certificate. Students do not receive diplomas on the day of commencement.

Students are eligible to “walk” in commencement if they are:

  • within ten credits or two classes of completing their program, or
  • one quarter of completing their degree and/or certificate (end of Summer Quarter, 2019), and
  • have completed their graduation application by April 12, 2019.

Participation in commencement does not mean that a student has satisfied all courses required to graduate with a degree or certificate. Students do not receive diplomas on the day of commencement.

If you apply after April 12th you may still be eligible to attend commencement, however, your name will not be printed in the official program and you will not receive recognition for honor awards during the ceremony.
