The Registrar’s Office has the honor of conferring Degrees, Diplomas, and Technical Certificates of Credit to the graduates of Augusta Technical College. There is one Commencement Ceremony held each year in honor of our graduates. Graduation is the process that verifies all degree requirements have been met, and the degree awarded (i.e., conferred). Students must apply for graduation in their final term. You are not required to participate in the commencement ceremony in order to graduate.
