Degree Completion Day

Come learn about the other end of registration and how to get there

Are you just getting started at Parkland working toward a degree? Degree Completion Day might be an easy way to make your schedule for the whole two years through student planning.

Maybe your mom or dad has some credits from Parkland but never completed a degree. You could both come to Degree Completion Day, Wednesday Oct. 3 from 9:30 to 1:30 in the U building and find out what’s needed to finish.

Perhaps you’re just “this close" to a certificate. Counselors will be available to check your success. Financial Aid will be there to let you know if you might qualify for a Pell Grant. If you think you will finish in fall or spring, we will have Graduation Petitions for you to submit to Admissions, and you can find out what the commencement ceremony is all about. In addition, we'll have refreshments and a raffle with WPCD-FM live streaming!

Come on over to the Student Union and learn about the other end of registration. See you there.
