Matriculated students can submit the Intent to Graduate web form on the GBCC website. If they are participating in the Commencement ceremony held each year in May, they must have met all program requirements. Exceptions may be made at the discretion of the college for students whose program is scheduled to be completed in the summer semester directly following the Commencement ceremony. Exceptions may also be made for students who have eight (8) or fewer credits in not more than two courses remaining for program completion.

All outstanding monies owed to the College must be paid before the degree or certificate is released.  Students are urged to work closely with their academic advisors to ensure they are making satisfactory progress toward fulfillment of graduation requirements.

Automatic Award – Upon completion of the program for which students applied, the College may automatically award the credential earn (i.e. Certificate or Degree).  It is still strongly recommended that students submit their Intent to Graduate web form for processing.
