Some Advice:

Prior to filing the Intent to Graduate and/or the Petition for a Certificate, it is highly advisable you see a counselor before your final term at El Camino College. This will ensure that you meet the requirements for your degree and/or certificate.


The Musts!

  • Have all official transcripts from former college(s) on file at El Camino College. Failure to provide these transcripts can delay your graduation intent and prevent you from graduating in the semester you selected.  Please note that the college does not accept hand carry or unofficial transcripts.  Official transcripts must be mailed from the former college(s) to El Camino College Admissions and Records Office.
  • Complete the form legibly, accurately, and completely. Missing or illegible information will slow the processing of your intent or petition.
  • Meet the published deadline as found in the class schedule. If you do not submit your request(s) in the Admissions office by the published deadline, your Intent or Petition will be delayed by a semester.

NOTE: If you are applying for an AA or AS Degree for Transfer please see a counselor. Do not submit the Intenet to
