Students do not need to apply to graduate. Once you complete all your degree requirements, your record will be evaluated for graduation purposes.
If you are on track to complete all your coursework and degree requirements by the end of the spring 2018 term, the Registrar's Office will send you an email and letter showing your pending graduation status and any missing (if applicable) courses. Bring the letter you were sent from the Registrar's Office to the AC Bookstore and purchase your cap and gown.
Commencement Day Instructions
Finalized instructions will be emailed to students (student email account). Students can also view the final commencement instructions (minus their designated arrival time) via this link.
PLEASE NOTE: If you do not receive a graduation e-mail and letter showing your in progress and/or in progress degree requirements, there will not be a check-in card available to you at the May Commencement Ceremony check-in desk and your name will not be listed in the Commencement brochure. If you have not been notified by March 1, 2018 and believe you should be on the list to graduate, please contact email@example.com.
After all student records are evaluated for graduation (no later than 10 days after the end of the semester), one diploma is currently available, at no cost, to the graduate for a period of up to one year from the student's official graduation date. After a one-year period has passed or for students who misplace a diploma or need multiple copies of a diploma, a $15 fee will be charged for each copy or additional copy.
Students will be notified when diplomas are available for pick up from Amarillo College's Washington Street AskAC counter. Graduates who live out of town and are unable to pick up a copy of their diploma in person can email firstname.lastname@example.org for information requests related to diploma pickup.
Please Note: The blue diploma covers are only provided to students who attend the Amarillo College commencement ceremony.
