Degree/Certificate Petition

Planning to complete your degree or certificate this Spring semester?

Students completing a degree or certificate must initiate an online graduation petition or a petition with the Admissions and Records office at the beginning of their graduation/completion term.

Deadline for Spring Graduation is the 1st Friday of March

Don’t miss the deadline, petition now!


Sacramento City College offers Associate Degrees, Associate Degrees for Transfer (ADT), Certificate of Achievement, and Certificates.

In order to receive a degree or certificate, all requirements of that degree or certificate must have been met by the end of the term in which you petition.

It is highly recommended that you meet with a counselor prior to submitting your graduation/certificate petition to ensure that you have met all the requirements for graduation.

Transfers from other Community Colleges or Universities

A. Official Transcripts

Students who have previously attended another college or university outside the Los Rios Community College District (LRCCD) must submit official transcripts before applying for graduation and/or certificate. Once transcripts have been received, students should make a counseling appointment to review their transfer credits towards their degree.

Please send all official transcripts to:

Sacramento City College
Admissions and Records Office
Student Services Building, STS 103
3835 Freeport Boulevard
Sacramento, CA 95822

B. Course Substitution Petitions

Course Substitution Petitions are needed when an equivalent course has been taken at another college, both within LRCCD and outside of LRCCD. Course Substitution Petitions start in the Counseling Center after your official transcripts have been received. Approved and signed Course Substitution Petitions need to be submitted to the Admissions and Records Office before the end of the semester/session in which you are applying to graduate.
