Congratulations! West Hills College Coalinga is excited to celebrate your academic success. As your journey with us comes to an end, find everything you need to know about preparing for graduation.
When all the studying is done, and your time at West Hills is coming to an end, it’s time to think about graduation. Time to celebrate your amazing achievement and the beginning of the next chapter of your life.
Your first step is to file a Petition to Graduate no later than the eighth week of your final semester. To petition to graduation please contact your counselor or advisor directly to schedule an appointment.
You can also find these petitions in the counseling office at your respective college. If you’re using outside coursework to fulfill your courses, West Hills needs copies of these academic records on file when you fill out your petition to graduate. Note that you’ll also need to visit with a counselor prior to graduation to ensure you’ve properly completed all the units needed to graduate.
Each spring, we celebrate our recent graduates with a commencement ceremony. Whether you’re earning an Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, Associate degree for Transfer or a Certificate of Achievement, we want you to join us in this celebration of your achievements!
