Graduating students should have already applied for Spring 2022 or Summer 2022 graduation. Fall 2021 graduates are encouraged to participate in Commencement ceremonies.  If you have not applied for graduation or are unsure about your status, please contact Lynda Ferguson at (636) 481-3205. 

Three ceremony options
Graduates choosing to participate in Commencement need to complete RSVP for the ceremony of your choice. Seating is limited and will be available on a first come first choose basis.

Ceremonies will be held in the Jefferson College Hillsboro Campus Field House.

The ceremonies will be live-streamed via the link on our Commencement web page.  Videos of the ceremonies will be posted the following week for future viewing.

Masks are recommended, but not required.

Diplomas
Degrees will be posted and diplomas will be mailed out approximately at the end of June for spring graduates and by the end of August for summer graduates. If you are interested in picking up your diploma rather than receiving via mail, please contact Lynda Ferguson at (636) 481-3205 or lfergus1@jeffco.edu.  Diplomas will not be released until your account is paid in full. You may pay any balances on your MyJeffco student tab or at the Cashier window.

Transcripts
You may order a transcript at any time via the Jefferson College website by searching “transcripts”. Important: if it is necessary, choose to “wait until degree is posted” so transcripts are not sent out prior to your degree posting.

If you have questions, please contact Enrollment Services at (636) 481-3205.
