Ready to graduate?
At the end of each semester, students are able to apply for the credential(s) that they have earned. Gateway awards certificates, diplomas and associate degrees. Applications are required for each degree or diploma you are earning. Certificates are awarded at the end of each semester and do not require an application.
Meet with your academic advisor to complete the application for your graduation.
Make an appointment with your assigned academic advisor by logging into your self-service account from MyPath then click on the Student Center tile.
Your assigned advisor is listed in the right-hand column.
To schedule an appointment, email your advisor and they’ll send you a link to their scheduling options.
Deadlines to Apply for your Degree/Credential:
Fall: November 1
Spring: April 1
Summer: July 1
Please fill out your Graduation Application on a laptop or desktop computer only. Mobile devices can cause errors in submission.
Graduates Don't Forget! You must complete the Gateway Exit Survey.
If you have any questions, please contact us.
Apply for your Degree/Credential
Once you submit your application for your degree/credential, the Records Office staff will review all documentation. Graduation applications are finalized after grades are posted at the end of the semester. Degree/Credential awards and denial notifications will be sent to your KCTCS email address.
Degrees/Credentials will be mailed to the address on file within 10-12 weeks from the end of the semester. You can update your mailing address in your Student Center under the Personal Information section. Find instructions here.
