Graduation Checklist

3 months before graduation:

  1. Be sure any official transcripts are evaluated by KCC, if transfer credits are needed to satisfy degree requirements. 
  2. Schedule an appointment with your academic advisor by phoning 815-802-8500 or emailing advising@kcc.edu​.
  3. Meet with your academic advisor to complete the petition to graduate.
  4. Pay all outstanding fees and fines.

KCC will review your petition to ensure all degree requirements are complete and financial obligations are paid. If they are, you will receive a graduation questionnaire to confirm your participation in commencement.

  1. Return the graduation questionnaire.
  2. Pick up your cap and gown.
  3. Attend commencement!

Your diploma will be mailed to the address on your petition approximately six weeks after the commencement ceremony.
