Requirements for graduation from Peninsula College specify:
A 2.0 or above cumulative grade point average.
NOTE: The cumulative grade point average will be calculated from college-level courses only (numbered 100 or above).
- A minimum of 90 credits meeting requirements for a specific degree.
Completion of the Residency Credit Requirement.
NOTE: To meet the residency requirement for a certificate or degree, 30 credits or one-third of the required credits, which- ever is less, must be earned at Peninsula College. However, a specific program may require a capstone sequence, or that more credits be earned in residence. Credits earned through articulation agreements and advanced placements do not satisfy residency requirements.
- The minimum requirement for a high school diploma is that the final course must be completed at Peninsula College.
- You must apply for a degree before you register for your last quarter of study.
- Individuals who are within 10 credits of completing graduation requirements at the conclusion of the spring quarter may take part in commencement exercises; however, degrees will not be awarded until all requirements have been completed.
A transcript is a report of grades and credits earned in courses during the quarters an individual has been enrolled. An official transcript is signed by a certified school official, with the college seal placed over the signature. A transcript is not released without a request from the individual. A fee of $6.00 is charged for each official transcript. Other fees may apply. Contact Pirate Central at firstname.lastname@example.org or (360) 417-6340 for more information. Transcripts will not be released for individuals who have unpaid college debts.
Unofficial transcripts are available on the College website at www.pencol.edu.
Current graduation checklists for degrees or certificates are available on the College website at www.pencol.edu or in Student Services. The checklist determines the course requirements necessary to complete the degree or certificate at the time the individual enters the program. Checklists can change annually.
Continuing students can graduate under the checklist with which they began or under a newer one if they so choose. If college studies are interrupted for more than two consecutive quarters (summer quarter not included), you must meet the degree requirements in effect at the time of readmission.
Application for Graduation
Individuals should apply for graduation one quarter in advance of the quarter they anticipate graduating. Degree applications are available on the College website at www.pencol.edu. The Application for Graduation, with any approved substitutions signed by a program advisor, should be returned to Student Services as soon as possible in the quarter. Student Services will perform a final review authorizing graduation or pointing out any deficiencies that must be overcome.
