Applying for Graduation

It's not too late to celebrate your accomplishment!

Please join us for the 49th annual Schoolcraft College Commencement Ceremony on May 3rd at Compuware Arena.

Even if you missed the Grad Fairs, you can still participate in the ceremony.  The Livonia Campus Bookstore staff will be happy to assist you with your graduation ceremony needs.

  • Your cap and gown can be purchased at the Livonia Campus Bookstore during their normal business hours, Monday through Thursday 8:30am to 7pm, Friday 8:30am to 4pm. The cap and gown is $20, which is due at the time of pick up.  
  • You will receive six (6) tickets for your family and friends to attend the ceremony.
  • You will be able to order graduation announcements, diploma frames, and gown pressing service. If you have questions please call the Livonia Campus Bookstore at 734-462-4409.

A professional photographer will be present to take each graduate’s picture. Graduates have the option of purchasing these photos and will be contacted by Call Photography approximately a week after the ceremony. There will be a DVD of the ceremony available for sale as well, at the Livonia Campus Bookstore for $15. 

The Commencement Ceremony begins at 4pm, however, all graduates are asked to arrive by 3pm. to prepare for the ceremony. 

We hope to see you there!

There is no charge to complete a Graduation Application. There is, however, a process that must be followed in order for you to receive your certificate or degree. It is up to you to take the first step.

  1. Determine the semester in which you plan to finish your coursework. You can track your progress toward your certificate or degree by logging into WebAdvisor and selecting Check Progress Toward Your Degree.
  2. Complete the Graduation Application form with the Counseling and Academic Advising Center (McDowell Center, Room 275) as early as possible to avoid missing the deadline for your final semester.
  3. Once final grades post for the semester, the Records Office will audit all graduation applications to verify that all requirements have been met.

When will I get my diploma?

  • Winter 2014 diplomas will be in the mail at the end of July.
  • Spring 2014 diplomas will be in the mail at the end of August.
  • Summer 2014 diplomas will be mailed at the end of September.
