Your advisors are always available to help you plan and track your path to graduation by satisfying your degree/certificate requirements. When you're ready to graduate, they are here to help you through the final steps. To receive your degree or certificate you must: 

  1. For a degree, complete a minimum of 90 credit hours according to an organized curriculum. (Some programs may require more than 90 credit hours.) Certificates vary in minimum credit hours, please check the specific certificate for minimum credits required.
  2. Complete and pass all required courses in a career-technical, general studies, or a transfer curriculum including the general education requirements as listed in the catalog. Once you’ve passed a course,  you cannot take a lower-level course for credit.
  3. Achieve an overall grade point average of 2.00 or higher.
  4. Keep a 2.00 grade point average for all courses being applied toward the degree and earn a 2.00 GPA in your major classes (e.g., course prefixes such as DH, FSE, NUR, etc.).
  5. Satisfactorily earn 12-24 credit hours at Mt. Hood Community College (MHCC). The required number of credits depends on the curriculum year of the degree or certificate you’re working towards.
