Heartland Community College confers degrees and certificates at the end of each semester.  You MUST submit a graduation application, regardless of whether you intend to participate in the commencement ceremony.

The graduation application is accessed through your Student Center (follow steps outlined below).  A separate application must be submitted for each degree or certificate.  Questions regarding the application should be directed to the Records Office.

  2. Click the Student Center button
  3. Enter your login name and password
  4. Click the Academic Records tile
  5. Click Apply for Graduation and follow the prompts
  6. Repeat if completing more than one degree

If a student does not meet the requirements to graduate, they should reapply for a future graduation term upon successful registration of the required courses.
