General Questions

When will I graduate?

Each semester (fall, spring, and summer) students complete their course of study and are ready to graduate. Deadlines to apply for graduation can be found on the Admissions - Academic Calendar page. 

When and where is the ceremony?

Graduation is held at the Fremont campus on the last Friday of the spring semester. 

Who is included in the ceremony?

The graduating class is new each academic year and includes all students who apply to graduate in fall, spring or summer before the deadline set by Admissions. For example: The Class of 2019 includes all students who apply to graduate during the Fall 2018, Spring 2019, and Summer* 2019 semester.

*Please note: summer semester applicants, who wish to be included in the ceremony, must apply before the "deadline to walk" not the deadline to graduate. 

During the spring semester, all potential graduates will receive information about participation in the ceremony via their Ohlone Student email.
