Graduation Application Information

Are you finishing your last program requirements this Fall?  If so, remember to apply to graduate by October 1. Take your completed graduation application to your advisor for review and signatures. Students who finish their programs in December 2015 are invited to participate in the TCL graduation ceremony in May 2016.  However, even if you opt not to participate in the formal graduation ceremony, you must still apply to graduate.  There is no charge to apply to graduate.

If you have any questions, please contact the Student Records office at 843-525-8272.

 Awards ready for pick up

Awards for May 2015 graduates (degrees, diplomas, and certificates) are available for pick up from the Student Records office in Building 2 on the Beaufort campus.  Awards can be picked up from Thursday,  May 21 through  Friday, May 29   Office hours are Monday – Thursday 8:00 – 5:30, Friday 8:00 – 4:30. Please bring a photo ID.  NOTE: Diplomas for graduates who submitted their application after the March 1st deadline may not yet be available – please contact the Student Records office to determine availability.

All graduates who live in the area should pick up their award in person to avoid any potential for the award to be “lost in the mail.” Awards for those who live out of the area will be mailed the week of June 1st  to the address listed on the graduation application. Graduates whose address have changed since submitting the graduation application, should notify the Student Records office of their new address prior to June 1 by e-mailing srecords@tcl.edu or by phone at 843-525-8272.

Option to Pick up Diplomas from the New River Campus

If you would prefer to pick up your award from the New River campus, please notify srecords@tcl.edu prior to  May 26 – awards can then be picked up at the Student Services office on the first floor at the New River campus on May 28th.  Please note that only diplomas of students who request to pick them up from the New River campus will be available at New River. 

Option to Have Someone Else Pick up Your Diploma

Graduates who wish to have someone else pick up their award should provide that person with a signed letter authorizing allowing TCL to release the award. The authorization should include the name of the person authorized to pick up the award and must be signed by the graduate.
