At Commencement, you will receive a diploma cover. Your actual diploma, along with an individual graduation photo, will be mailed to the address you provided on your Graduation Application approximately 6-8 weeks after graduation (by late June). A degree audit will be completed after final grades are entered to determine who graduated. We will not mail your diploma if you have an outstanding financial obligation to SATC or if your final, official high school transcript or GED (showing high school or GED graduation date) has not been received. All transfer credits must be sent via an official college transcript to be included in your degree audit.
