Congratulations! You committed, you put in the effort, and you did it! The completion of a college degree or certificate is a major accomplishment. Please accept our invitation to celebrate your accomplishment by participating in LTCC's graduation ceremony. Please review the following information for specific instructions regarding your participation or eligibility. If you have any questions about the graduation process, please email Dru Cunningham at or call (530) 541-4660 x 595.


Steps to Graduation

Once you complete all the requirements for your degree or certificate, you must meet with a counselor to submit a petition for your degree or certificate. They will help you fill out the petition and answer any questions you have regarding graduation.

After you have filled out the petition and it is approved, you will receive an invitation to attend and participate in graduation. If you decide to participate in graduation, you will have to alert the One-Stop of your decision so they can order an appropriate number of caps and gowns.

As graduation gets closer, caps and gowns will be available for pickup in the bookstore with presentation of a photo ID. Look for the announcements posted around campus for when you can pick up your cap and gown.
