Graduation Requirements

 

In order to graduate from Hudson County Community College and receive your diploma, students must:

  1. Fill out a Graduation Application (Diploma). There is no charge to apply for graduation.
  2. Submit the application electronically or print and submit at the Enrollment Services Office window at either campus.

Students must log into their MyHudson Portal and review their Program Evaluation/Student Planning located under their “Liberty Link for Students” tab.

If you have any questions regarding your degree requirements, we suggest you visit the Center for Academic and Student Success to speak with an academic advisor or counselor.

Please keep in mind that the Graduation Application (Diploma) is intended to determine whether or not you have completed or will be completing all of your degree requirements and therefore, obtaining your diploma. It is not related to the Commencement ceremony.

Application Deadlines:

Students should submit their graduation application before their last semester begins, ideally at the beginning of the registration period for that semester. 

  • Deadline if you plan to graduate at the end of a fall semester: April 1 
  • Deadline if you plan to graduate at the end of a spring semester: November 1

** We suggest you apply during the semester before completing your degree requirements.

For more information, please log in to your MyHudson Portal and visit the Registrar’s Office portal page:
