Congratulations! You are nearing graduation and need to know all of the information concerning the requirements and procedures for graduation. Below a graduation requirements link is available to assist
students and advisors in planning course selections required to graduate from JCJC. Career and Technical or Vocational students working toward an Associate degree in Applied Science or Certificate should see their advisor for specific
graduation requirements. You are also urged to review the curriculum guides for the various areas of major emphasis.
Summer 2021 Graduation Applications coming soon.
Career and Technical or Vocational students working toward an Associate Degree in Applied Science or Certificate should see their advisor for specific graduation requirements.
Students graduating in the CURRENT semester may fill out the online form here
The name on the diploma will appear exactly as it is on file with the Admissions Office.
The address on the graduation application should be the same as the address on file in the Admissions Office. Please notify the Admissions Office if you have a change of address. Failure to change the address through the Admissions Office will delay the receipt of the diploma. Students should provide one or more telephone numbers where they can be reached after graduation.
If planning to walk, the student must fill in height and weight.
A letter will be mailed to the student approximately 3 weeks prior to the graduation ceremony instructing participating graduates on procedures for graduation.
Turning in a graduation application and/or participating in the ceremony is NOT a guarantee that you will graduate in that given semester. The student's transcript must be reviewed by the Registrar after all grades have posted for the semester to determine eligibility for graduation, this falls after any ceremonies at the college.
Degrees will be posted approximately 3 weeks after the conferral date, but it may take longer if there are any issues, such as missing grades, unmet requirements, pending transfer credits, or a balance on my account.
Students completing graduation requirements during the Fall Semester have the option of participating in the graduation ceremony held at the end of the Spring Semester. However the official transcript will reflect a December graduation date.
Students wanting the gold seal adhered to their diploma should follow the instructions given on the PTK Canvas course page in order to have their membership in good standing verified by a PTK advisor.
DIPLOMAS WILL BE MAILED 4 - 5 WEEKS AFTER THE COMMENCEMENT CEREMONY.
The Jones College 2021 Commencement exercises will be held Saturday, May 22, 2021, at 8:00 p.m. on the north lawn of Jones Hall. The 2021 ceremony will celebrate the achievements of both the graduating class of 2020 and 2021.
In order to keep our graduates and their families safe and in compliance with current public health guidance, each graduate will be allocated four tickets for the graduation ceremony. The number of tickets allocated has been determined based on public health guidance and proper social distancing, so we are unable to offer additional tickets for each graduate. Please note that we will be live-streaming the commencement ceremony. We will share more information on how to view the ceremony in the coming weeks.
All graduation tickets will be distributed to graduates at the completion of graduation practice.
A greater than usual demand for on-site parking is expected for this event. We will release information regarding parking options on-site via the Jones College website in the upcoming weeks.
Graduation practice will be hosted by the Office of Student Affairs on Friday, May 21, 2021, at 1:00 p.m. following the 2021 Sophomore Lunch on the Plaza at 11:30 a.m.
Caps, gowns, and the allotted graduation tickets will be distributed to graduates after graduation practice.
For questions regarding the 2021 graduation ceremony, please contact Kacie Birdsong at 601-477-4137.
Thank you for your patience as we finalize plans for our 2021 Commencement. Our goal is to create a safe and exciting environment to celebrate the successes and honor our graduates’ achievements.
