Degree/Certificate Evaluation Process
For the graduation event / ceremony, please visit: shastacollege.edu/commencement.
Are you ready to graduate? Submit as soon as possible for Spring 2022 degrees!
- Log in to MyShasta
- Go to Academic Profile and select the link “Student ed-planning”
- Go to View Your Progress and select the link “Go to My Progress”
- At the top of My Progress, you will see your currently active program name and program code. If this is not correct, please update your program/educational goal with the Change of Information form (Dynamic Forms)!
- A list of current programs and program codes is available in the 2021-22 General Catalog on page 19.
We strongly encourage you to meet with a Counselor to review your program requirements for your final term(s) and confirm that your degree/certificate is up to date in our system.
The Degree/Certificate Application (Dynamic Forms) is available online.
The “Degree/Certificate Application Preview Filing Period” allows our staff to evaluate your degree requirements in progress and notify you if you are on track or need to modify your classes for your final term(s). Degree applications received after the Degree/Certificate Application Preview Filing Period will not be previewed.
Degree/Certificate applications must be received by the Final Degree Application Deadline. Any applications received after this date may be returned to you for resubmission for the following term.
If you want to be included in the May Commencement Ceremony Bulletin, Spring/Summer Degree/Certificate applications must be received by April 1. No exceptions.
The Hub organizes the Commencement Ceremony. More information about the ceremony will be available on their website in spring semester. The Hub will send you an email about the Commencement Ceremony in later Spring term.

If you spoke with your counselor about a waiver or substitution, have you followed up with faculty to complete the documentation for that?
Final evaluations are completed after grades are posted for your final term. Degrees are evaluated in the following priority order:

Within each category, degree applications are evaluated in alphabetical order.
Evaluating and Posting Degrees & Certificates
Once your degree has been evaluated, we will email you a notification of your status. If your degree/certificate has been approved, we will let you know when you can expect to receive your Diploma and/or Certificate in the mail.
Due to the volume of degree applications, it can take between 1 – 3 months to evaluate all degree applications for a term.

If a degree and/or certificate is posted, students can request the degree and/or certificate to be removed by submitting the request in writing to the Admissions and Records Office.
