To graduate or receive a certificate from LBCC, students need to turn in their forms to admissions and records by Friday, March 8 at noon.

Applications may be found at admission and records office in N108 at the LAC or MD135 at the PCC. Print forms are online at lbcc.edu/Admissions/forms.cfm.

Graduation and certificates of achievement are two different forms.

Students may qualify for a retroactive degree, which means the necessary courses are completed but they haven’t applied for graduation yet. The curriculum guides for certificates and degrees are at lbcc.edu/Articulation/guides.cfm.

If more information is needed from a student or they are denied, they will be notified by email, staff said. Also, students can expect a response in late May to early April, they added. Graduation is Thursday, June 6.

For more information, students may call (562) 938-4485 for the LAC or (562) 938-4485 for the PCC. Both offices are open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. and Fridays from 8 a.m.-noon.
