I plan to complete degree requirements the summer following commencement. How do I know if I am eligible to participate in the commencement ceremony?
Students who have 2 courses or fewer to complete in the summer must register for summer classes and submit the summer graduation application by the end of the day on April 30, if they want to participate in Commencement. The Academic Records Office will review the student’s record and send a communication to the student’s BHCC email when the review is complete.
The diploma will be mailed to the address that was included on the graduation application. An email will be sent to students’ BHCC email address when the final review of their account is completed. The email will include the date when the diploma will be mailed. *As long as your graduation application remains active, you can change the address listed. If you have questions about changing the address where your diploma will be mailed, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
