Graduation

Applying for Graduation and Information for Recent Graduates

Have you applied for Graduation? Please review these requirements:

  • Complete the requirements for your program of study as listed in the catalog in effect at the time of initial enrollment or any subsequent catalog including the current one. 
  • Earn at least 50 percent of credential requirements at Westmoreland County Community College under faculty instruction and evaluation. This does not include transfer credits, credits awarded for CLEP and other standardized exams, credit by exam or portfolio. *
  • Maintain a grade point average of 2.0 or better in all course work required and maintain a 2.0 average or better in the major. 
  • Fulfill all financial obligations to the college. 
  • File an application for graduation

Notes: Those who fail to meet graduation requirements must notify the Records Office to reactivate their graduation files.  You can still apply for Graduation. Developmental courses (those courses which have course numbers below 100) carry no quality points, may not be used to meet graduation requirements and will not transfer to all senior institutions.
