Reapplying for Graduation

If you previously submitted a Graduation Application but did not graduate, you must submit an updated application to be considered for a future graduation. If you are completing an additional program, you will need to complete another Graduation Application.

The Graduation Application can be accessed by going to the Graduation card on the Discover page of the MyBTC portal.


A moment of pride for any student is the day of commencement. Commencement is the recognition that you have accomplished something of importance that will have meaning for years to come. The commencement exercises are held in May and December. Students who meet all program requirements are invited to participate.
