Many students are finishing up their final year at South Plains College, tying up loose ends and looking forward to the future.
Those students who have completed all their degree requirements could be eligible for graduation in December. If you think you may be one of those students, see your program advisor as soon as possible. Students can find out who their advisor is on CampusConnect. They will be able to tell students if they are eligible for a December graduation.
Students who have completed their degree requirements must fill out a graduation application and submit it by Nov. 3.
Students must complete all degree requirements by December 2015. They must have a cumulative GPA of at least a 2.0, and they need to complete an online application through their MySPC account.
Applications also are available at the Admissions and Records Office on the Levelland, Reese Center, and Plainview campuses.
Andrea Rangel, dean of admissions and academic advising, says that, “The most important thing is that students who are interested meet with their advisor.”
Advisors will be able to tell students if they’re eligible to apply for graduation. Check with them to determine whether you need any further classes or last-minute assistance.
Students who graduate at the end of this semester will not have a graduation ceremony in December. Instead, they are invited back in May of 2016 to participate in the ceremony that the rest of their class will participate in.
To fill out an online application, go to the college’s website at http://www.southplainscollege.edu.
