Access the Graduation Petition Form (Word document)

There is no additional cost associated with the commencement ceremonies. All costs have already been included in your paid tuition.

Honor Cords

Honor cords are given out at the same time students pick up their caps and gowns. Determination is based on a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher as of Winter Quarter 2015.

Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society regalia are initially given at induction. If you have been inducted into Phi Theta Kappa, please contact Rob Vogel (rob.vogel@scc.spokane.edu), Angela Finnie (angela.finnie@scc.spokane.edu) or Student Life (studentlife@scc.spokane.edu) for more information.

Cap and Gown Distribution

Cap and gown distribution will begin June 1, 2016 in the LAIR Student Center (Building 06), main lobby towards the bookstore. Look for directional signs.

On June 1 and 2, distribution will be facilitated by our vendor. This is an opportune time to ask our vendor questions regarding caps and gowns. After June 5, caps and gowns will be available for pickup at the Student Activities office in the Lair (Building 06, Room 0125) during normal business hours.

If you have questions about petitioning for graduation, please contact the Transcripts office at (509) 533-8693.

If you have questions about the commencement ceremonies, please call (509) 533-8657 or email StudentLife@scc.spokane.edu.

Our Live Streaming event is over. Please check back next year!

Student Housing

SCC has no on-campus housing. Student Activities (509.533.8657) has maintained a listing of off-campus housing options for students, but are not currently providing that service. We are in the process of examining the usefulness and feasibility of this service to both students and renters. Please contact us at studentlife@scc.spokane.edu to share your thoughts. Thank you.
