Getting Ready to Graduate?

Intent to Graduate applications are available on the Student Portal or at the Registrar’s Office.

Please be sure to submit your Intent to Graduate Application and $150 Fee per program (valid only for one academic year) as soon as the application for your expected graduation term becomes available. Applicants who apply early will receive an earlier graduation audit.

While Quincy College holds one annual Graduation Ceremony in May, degrees are conferred and diplomas are awarded twice each year. All students are required to submit the Intent to Graduate Application regardless of whether you will attend the Graduation ceremony. The Registrar’s Office does not know that you plan to graduate if you do not submit an Intent to Graduate Application.

Accessing the Application via the My QC Portal
To access the Intent to Graduate Application, log into your Student Portal and click the Student tab, under the student window, click on Apply for Graduation.

Application submission deadlines are as follows:

Late applications may still be submitted to the Registrar’s Office, but will be subject to a $75 late application fee and may result in additional penalties. For example, unable to attend the graduation ceremony and your diploma will not arrive in a timely manner.

Students choosing not to attend the Graduation Ceremony should check the Will Not Attend box on the Intent to Graduate Application. Any changes in attending status should be emailed to Jenny Chan at before March 22, 2019.
