Guide to Graduation

I Love Quincy College

What do students love about Quincy College? From the flexible schedules to becoming a leader, hear more directly from the students themselves.

Getting Ready to Graduate?

Please be sure to submit your Intent to Graduate Application and $150 Fee per a 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.

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:

The application deadline is March 23, 2018.

Late applications may still be submitted through the Registrar’s Office, but will be subject to a $75 late application fee and may result in additional penalties. For example, your name may not appear in the graduation program and your diploma will not arrive in time for the graduation ceremony.

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 23, 2018.

Congratulations Class of 2017!
