Prepare for Commencement

In order to participate in Commencement, you will need to first complete an application to graduate to confirm your eligibility to graduate. All students who have fulfilled their graduate requirements between Fall 2023 and Summer 2024 quarters are eligible to apply and participate in Commencement. If you are graduating from a professional/technical program, you will also need to submit a planning guide signed by your program advisor and division dean with your graduation application.

Complete an application to graduate

Shoreline Community College is excited to announce the 2024 Commencement ceremony will be held on on Friday, June 21, at 2:00 p.m. in the gym (3000 building) on our campus. A small reception for graduates and their guests will be held directly following the ceremony at the PUB (9000 building) Courtyard.

Graduates must sign up for Commencement. Please check back in March/April for a link.

Diplomas are sent to graduates once a final evaluation of credits is completed and a degree is officially conferred. Diplomas are mailed to spring graduates in August/September and to summer graduates in October.

Commencement Ceremony tickets are required for all guests in the gym except for children under 5 years of age who will sit on an adult’s lap for the entirety of the event. Tickets are not required for graduates. When graduates sign up to participate in Commencement, they will have the opportunity to request a limited number of tickets for guests. Additional overflow seating will be available on campus. More information regarding tickets will be available soon.

Additional information will be added to this page throughout Winter and Spring quarter, such as details regarding regalia (cap & gown), tickets to the Commencement ceremony, instructions for graduates on the day of Commencement, and other important details. Please continue to check back as we finalize this information.
