Graduation is an automatic process, streamlining the necessary steps for students and ensuring their transcripts reflect the degree or certificate earned.
Review of Completion Status
Students who will be “100% program complete” at the end of the term will be eligible for graduation. During the months of October (Fall), March (Spring) and July (Summer), an e-mail will be sent to eligible students informing them of their graduation status and inviting them to participate in the commencement ceremony.
Students wishing to postpone their graduation must e-mail their request to the Graduation Office after the e-mail invite. Although the degree/certificate will not be posted at this time, this does not guarantee that the student will receive financial aid. Students will need to discuss this with the Financial Aid Office to determine options. It is imperative that students take classes within their program of study.
Commencement is held twice a year, in December (Fall) and May (Spring). To be eligible to participate in the ceremony, a student’s degree audit must indicate they are 100% program complete or a potential term graduate.
Note: Summer graduates who would like to participate in the upcoming ceremony should send an e-mail request to the Graduation Office at email@example.com
Degree or Certificate Verification
Palm Beach State College has entered into an agreement with National Student Clearinghouse for the verification of degrees and earned certificates. National Student Clearinghouse has been granted the authority to respond to these types of requests from interested third parties on Palm Beach State's behalf. Verifications require student authorization.
Palm Beach State College warrants that the results delivered by National Student Clearinghouse, acting as the College's agent, should be considered equivalent in authority to information provided directly by the College.
To begin an order at no cost to current or previous students, go to www.studentclearinghouse.org . Students must set up an account and select a unique user ID and password, which is NOT their Palm Beach State Student ID number and password.
Don't forget to pick up your Graduation Packet. The packet contains guest tickets, free parking pass for CityPlace, parking map and "Need to Know - Guide for Graduation"
