Intent to Graduate Form for an A.A. or A.S.
Petition for a Certificate


Prior to filing the Intent to Graduate and/or the Petition for a Certificate, it is highly recommended that students see a counselor before their final term at Compton College.  This will ensure that students meet the requirements for their degree and/or certificate.


  • Have all official transcripts from former college(s) on file at Compton College.  Failure to provide these transcripts can delay processing the graduation intent and further prevent the student from graduating in their desired term.  Please note that the college does not accept hand carry transcripts or unofficial transcripts.  Official transcripts from the former college(s) must be mailed directly to Compton College, Admissions and Records Office, 1111 E Artesia Blvd, Compton,CA 90221

  • Complete the form legibly, accurately, and entirely.  Missing or illegible information will delay processing the petition.

  • Meet the published deadline as found in the class schedule. Students that fail to submit their intent or petition by the published deadline will have their petitions processed the following term.

Forms submitted at the Admissions and Records Office at Compton College are forwarded to evaluators at El Camino College once a week.
