Graduation Application Procedure
All students should apply for graduation immediately after enrolling in the final
semester of classes needed for their degree. If transfer hours have been earned at
another institution the student must submit official transcripts to the Records and
Graduation Office before a degree can be conferred. At least 15 of the semester credit
hours presented for a degree must be earned at Oklahoma City Community College. For
a second degree, at least 15 additional OCCC credit hours that were not applied to
the first degree and are applicable to the second degree must have been earned. Applications
are available on the college website or in the Records and Graduation Office during
regular office hours.
Students are responsible for purchasing their caps and gowns through the Bookstore
and will be available for purchase beginning in March.. The previous summer and fall
graduates, along with spring candidates, are eligible to participate in the ceremony.
Students who will complete degree requirements by the end of the following summer
may also be allowed to participate. In order for a student to have their name included
in the Commencement Program, a graduation application must have been submitted to
the Records and Graduation office no later than the Friday of Spring Break, no exceptions.
