San Diego City College spring 2021 graduates will be honored this May at virtual and drive-thru commencement celebrations. Students must apply April 30, 2021 to graduate and be included in these events.

To apply for graduation, login to your student portal, click on the ‘my academics’ option on your homepage and choose ‘apply for graduation’ from the drop down menu.

Information about graduation requirements can be found on the district’s website here or by contacting academic counseling here.

Upon graduation approval, graduates will be emailed a graduation survey, which must be completed for participation in the virtual ceremony. Graduates will also be required to create a personal slide on MarchingOrder for the virtual ceremony. 

Graduates who participate in the virtual ceremony will receive free regalia while supplies last. 

Students are encouraged to wear their regalia and decorate their cars for the drive-thru celebration on May 21, 2021. More information about the drive-thru ceremony will be emailed to virtual graduation participants in the coming weeks.

If your graduation status has changed or you haven’t  received a survey please email [email protected].
