Good Afternoon Seahawks, 


In order to recognize our graduating Harbor College students, Los Angeles Community College District will be hosting a Virtual Commencement Ceremony, Tuesday, June 8th at 5 pm.  The ceremony will include the calling of graduating students' names and a display of their photographs.


In order to have your name called during the ceremony, you must submit a graduation petition​. If you have not already completed a graduation petition with a counselor, you must submit one by the priority submission deadline, March 26th, 2021.​  

Although you can still petition for graduation up until Tuesday, May 5th by 5 pm, we cannot guarantee that your name will be called.  To start your graduation petition process, connect with a Counselor as soon as possible.  They are ready and waiting to meet with you virtually, click HERE ​to schedule an appointment.  


If you opt to participate in the Virtual Commencement Ceremony, you will receive more information, to your LACCD student email account soon.

The Ceremony will be held on

June 8, 2021 Time: 5 pm

All LACCD campuses, including Los Angeles Harbor College, will hold an online Virtual Commencement (Graduation) Ceremony instead of an in-person ceremony  due to public orders requiring social distancing, and prohibiting large public gatherings to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  Each Ceremony will be approximately two and a half hours long, depending on the number of graduates for the college.
