Graduation Requirements

You must complete all program requirements and elective courses required as specified in the college catalog for that curriculum. The catalog used to determine graduation requirements is the one in effect at the time of the student’s acceptance into a curriculum or any subsequent catalog as selected by the student.

If you have transferred credits from other colleges, make sure that you have completed 25% of your credit hours at Paul D. Camp Community College.

You must earn a grade point average of at least 2.0 in your curriculum. For specified programs, a grade point average of at least 2.5 is required. Honor eligibility is based on your cumulative grade point average.

Steps to Graduation

Before you submit your graduation application, meet with your academic counselor/advisor to ensure you:

  • Are listed in the correct program plan and catalog year
  • Have completed or are registered for all remaining course work required for your plan
  • Apply for the appropriate graduation term
