Graduation

Graduation is an exciting time for every student. The hard work, commitment, time, and effort they put into their classes and major programs at San Diego Christian College culminates with graduation announcements, events and a glorious ceremony as they celebrate with their friends and family.

The few months prior to graduation are filled with activities, events, planning and to-dos. We’ve created this page to help graduating students and their friends and family members get all the information they will need. Please see below or use the tabs in the navigation bar to learn more about announcements, schedule of events, graduation banquet and ceremony.
