Applying For Graduation Online
To apply for graduation, students will log into their MyVWCC account, click on Student Information System, click on Student Center, then click on Apply for Graduation.
Verify all information on screen is correct. If not, you will need to complete a Notification of Change form and submit to the Enrollment Center, Chapman Hall, Room 108.
Click on Proceed With Making Application
Select Institution. (Student may have multiple institutions listed here. Need to select VW286 Va Western Community College.)
(The only term available will be for the current term. The exception will be during the time both the spring and summer application is "turned on" to accommodate summer students wanting to participate in the Commencement Ceremony. The student will need to select the correct term in which they are applying to graduate.)
Click Continue. (All of the current plans a student is enrolled in will appear.)
Select any plans for which you are graduating from this term. In this example, the student is only graduating from one of their current plans.
If this student was planning on graduating from both plans, both boxes would be checked.
If the plan you wish to graduate from is not listed above, and you check this box and enter the plan you want to graduate in, you MUST complete a Program/Plan Change form and submit it to your faculty advisor, program advisor, or through the enrollment center in Chapman Hall.
Please remember you will be able to complete the graduation application – but it will NOT be processed until you submit the Program/Plan Change form.
The name that showed at the top of the graduation application is the name that will print on your diploma. Changing the information here will NOT reflect on your diploma. If this is not your current LEGAL name, you will need to submit a Notification of Change form through the Enrollment Center in Chapman Hall.
Check all that apply.
Check the I Agree box if you are ready to submit your application. (Once you complete this step, the application will be submitted and no changes can be made. If you realize there is a mistake on your application, you will need to come to Chapman Hall and ask to speak to a Records representative).
Then click Submit.
Your confirmation page appears:
Should you have not met your requirements for graduation, your faculty or program advisor will contact you. After the deadline to apply for graduation has passed, you will receive an email through your student email account with detailed information regarding cap & gown pickup, the graduation ceremony, and diploma pickup.
