Check Your Email
Look for an email from Records indicating your confirmation of completion or actions you still need to take to graduate.
Register for Graduation
Register in March for the graduation ceremony, which is held every May.
Moraine Valley's graduation ceremony is held once a year at the end of spring semester for graduates from the previous summer and fall semesters and current spring graduates. It typically takes place on the third Friday of May. A graduation invitation is mailed in mid-March to all students who have petitioned to graduate. If you do not receive a letter but believe you should have or have any other questions about graduation, email Jessica Crotty.
