PURPOSE:  To outline the process for applying, verifying, and awarding Trident Technical College degrees.

  1. NOTICE
    During each semester the Registrar will post notices stating the deadline for the receipt of completed graduations applications.
  2. ADMINISTRATIVE DEGREE AUDIT
    The Registrar's office will furnish the academic departments with a list of potential graduates each semester. The academic program dean (or designee) reviews the student's education record and forwards degree audit and any Graduation Course Substitution forms to the Registrar's office for further processing.
    1. Upon receiving an electronic graduation audit form, the Registrar (or designee) reviews the student's education record to verify satisfactory completion of requirements for the final semester.  If approved, the Registrar's office records the semester of graduation and the grade point average on the Graduation Application form.  If not approved, the Registrar's office notifies the student by mail to contact the academic advisor regarding the graduation application status.

      Note:  The Registrar will handle any degree audits prior to 2002 on a case-by-case basis.
  3. GRADUATION CEREMONY
    TTC conducts one graduation ceremony each year, following the completion of the spring semester. Students expecting to complete their course work by the end of the summer semester may participate in the graduation ceremony along with fall and spring graduates from the current academic year. Awarding of the actual credential will not take place until all requirements, including course work, are completed. Each student who plans to participate in the graduation ceremony must complete a Graduation Application at the Registrar's office or online through the student portal.
  4. RECORDS RETENTION
    The Registrar's office maintains the Administrative Degree Audit, Graduation Application and all related documents in accordance with the General Records Retention Schedule for the state of South Carolina.
