AA/AS Credential Application
This form should only be used if you are graduating with an AA or AS degree.
If you are graduating from one of our technical programs with an AAS, Diploma, or Certificate students MUST meet with their academic advisor to complete a graduation application, obtain signature of advisor, as well as an attached updated plan of study. Once this process is complete, the advisor or student should submit to the Registrar by the designated deadline for the semester.
Progress to Degree
After submission of your application, your file will be checked by the Registrar to determine that all requirements have been met. You will receive an email only if there are questions regarding your degree application. Please note once applications are processed, the Registrar will award the credential(s) to the student’s official academic record and mail the diploma to the physical address listed on the application. This process takes approximately 6 to 8 weeks after final grades are posted for the semester.

Degrees are conferred three times per year (August, December and May), but formal commencement exercises are conducted only in December and May. Information regarding fall and spring ceremonies will be emailed to the student's KCTCS email.
