The application and diploma are free of charge.

Other Requirements



You are required to run your Degree Check degree audit to be sure you are on track and/or meet with your academic advisor to assure your requirements will be completed by the end of your planned graduation term.


You should check your MyMCC record to be sure your full name and local address are current and correct, as these will be used for diploma creation and mailing. Diplomas are free of charge and do not require Commencement Ceremony participation.


Participation in the MCC annual Spring Commencement Ceremony is encouraged, but not required. A fee must be paid to the MCC College Store to reserve your space at the ceremony and to order your diploma cover, cap and gown. When in-person ceremony is not possible, a ‘live’ virtual ceremony is held and students must meet deadlines to provide information for inclusion of photos, name pronunciation, and thank you statements.

Late Graduation Applications

Students who file graduation applications after the term deadline may risk missing deadlines for:

  • Graduation honors designations and honors cord
  • Graduation publicity
  • Inclusion in the commencement program listings, programs, and commencement participation (in-person or virtual). They may also incur a delay in final graduation processing and receipt of diploma beyond the usual 6-8 weeks afterthe term end, as well as be charged extra for commencement participation by the College Store.
