When and Where Do I Submit A Graduation Petition?

  • Submit your completed graduation petition (including the counselor signature) to the West Los Angeles College Admissions Office (SSB 2nd floor) before the deadline date of November 30, 2017.  If you would prefer to email your counselor-signed petition, please send it to gradpetitions@wlac.edu.  If you cannot send or deliver a petition signed by a counselor, your counselor can email your graduation petition to us at gradpetitions@wlac.edu

  • If you plan to graduate from West in the fall of 2017 AND also plan to transfer to a CSU in the winter or spring of 2018, please submit your graduation petition by October 27, 2017.  

 

Who Reviews My Graduation Petition And When Will I Be Notified?

  • Graduation petitions will be evaluated by an evaluation technician after grades are posted at the end of your final semester.  Once your final semester has ended, please allow three months for one of the following:

  1. A graduation confirmation email notifying you that your award has been posted to your transcript and your diploma is ready for pick-up.

  2. A graduation denial email notifying you which requirements you still need to complete in order to receive a degree from West Los Angeles College.

 

Any supporting documentation needs to be submitted before the end of final semester.
