Adult High School Graduation Steps

  • Submit a Graduation Application

    Graduation applications should be submitted to the Adult High School office. Please check with them at 704.330.6144. for the appropriate way to submit the application.

  • Graduation Audit

    Potential graduates who submit a graduation application to the Adult High School Office must first be cleared by the the College and Career Readiness Department to graduate. Once you have completed the necessary course work and have been given Literacy Education Information System (LEIS) clearance, your information is given to the graduation department for processing. An audit is conducted on your file by the graduation department. You will be notified by email that you have been graduated within four to 6 weeks after you submit your graduation application. Your transcript will be updated with your graduation status at this point. You will also receive an order form to order your diploma.

    If the Graduation Office tells you that you need an additional course, but your advisor told you that you were finished, it is possible that your education plan needs to be updated or a course substitution needs to be initiated. Schedule an appointment with your advisor to determine how that course requirement was to be satisfied. Once that has been resolved, call your Graduation Analyst to inform them.

  • Order Your Diploma

    High School Diplomas are printed by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School system. The Graduation Office places orders for diplomas in January, June, and August. Diplomas are mailed to graduates approximately 8 weeks after CPCC orders the diplomas from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools.

    Additional copies of your Adult High School Diploma may be purchased for $20. Please contact your Graduation Analyst for an order form. Diplomas are printed by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School system.

    Central Piedmont places orders for diplomas in January, June, and August. Please note that regardless of when you place an order for your diploma, you will not receive it until approximately 8 weeks after the order can be placed with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School system.

  • Attend Graduation Ceremony (If Eligible to Participate)

    In order to participate in the graduation ceremony, you must submit your graduation application by March 1. This guarantees processing in time to order your cap and gown. Applications submitted after March 1 are not guaranteed processing before the deadline to purchase a cap and gown for the ceremony.

    The Graduation Office emails detailed information on cap and gown purchases and other ceremony details to graduates and eligible potential graduates beginning in early April. Cap and gown pickup begins during the Graduation Fair at the Central Campus bookstore in late April. Read our Commencement Ceremony Information section for more information on the ceremony.
