Graduation & Commencement Information

Planning is underway for this year’s commencement ceremony, but because of the ongoing pandemic we cannot yet confirm that it will be held in person. 

We will share updates as they become available and update the website. 


Students Submitting a Graduation Application for Winter 2021

Graduation applications are accepted and processed for winter 2021. Students are still encouraged to work with an advisor who can guide them through the graduation application process (Virtual Assistance is available). We realize meeting with an advisor may be more challenging during this time. In such cases, the application may be sent directly to SEvaluations@seattlecolleges.edu for processing.

Graduation applications are available at: southseattle.edu/pdf-library/documents/graduation/application.pdf


Fall 2020 Diplomas

For students who have applied and completed all program requirements at the end of fall quarter, diplomas will be mailed to the address on file. Fall graduates who have not received their diploma by January 30, 2021 will need to contact the Evaluations Office at SEvaluations@seattlecolleges.edu.

It's important to note the only document accepted as proof of conferral in the United States is your sealed and official transcript, which can be pre-ordered following instructions found at southseattle.edu/student-resources/transcripts-grades. Normally, your degree or certificate is posted to your transcript within three weeks after the end of your final quarter. If you are an International student and in immediate need of your diploma to be able to enroll in a university, or college in another country, you may contact SEvaluations@seattlecolleges.edu to make alternate arrangements.
