Congratulations on your academic achievement! You have come to the right place as you look at the necessary steps to complete and celebrate your degree or certification from Clover Park Technical College! Make sure you read all this information thoroughly and follow each of the steps noted below.

Steps to Complete and Celebrate

Step 1: Verify Your Transcript

In order to receive your certificate or degree you must complete a Degree/Certificate Application. This step is crucial as it communicates with our credentials evaluator that CPTC needs to go through your transcripts and verify that we can award you your degree or certificate.

Students can complete this degree/certificate application the 4th week of the quarter you will complete your program or certificate. Completing your Graduation Award Application does not register you for the annual Commencement Ceremony, please proceed to Step 2 to officially RSVP for the ceremony.

Step 2: RSVP for the Commencement Ceremony

The 2018 Commencement Ceremony will be on Tuesday, June 19 at 6:30pm.

RSVP for the Graduation Ceremony by June 5, 2018 to ensure that your name is included in the official graduation program. If you have already submitted the RSVP Postcard you do not need to register online. Students that miss the June 6 deadline can still register and participate in the ceremony, though your name may be excluded from the printed program as it has already gone to print. Please be sure to complete Step 1: Verify Your Transcript if you haven’t done so.
