Graduation Home

DACC requires students to “apply” to graduate for a certificate or degree. Current students, or students who have attended the college in the last year, should submit their Application to Graduate through the Jaguar Spot. Instructions, based on your recent enrollment at DACC, are listed below.

Please note: It is never too late! DACC is always happy to affirm certificates and degrees. Many students even transfer credit hours back (from two-year or four-year colleges) to complete a certificate/degree that they started at DACC. If you have any questions, please call the Records Office (information listed below).

Process for Current or Recent Students

Apply to Graduate Online:

  1. Log-in to the Jaguar Spot
  2. Go to the Student Menu
  3. Under the “Academic Records” section of the Students Menu, click on the Application for Graduation option.
  4. Choose the Program of Study/Major that you plan on graduating from. Note: If you do not see your program, please call the DACC Admissions Office (217-443-8802) to update your records.
  5. Review & update the information on the application: diploma name, address to mail diploma to, anticipated graduation term, commencement date (the last official day of the semester), email address.
  6. Click on the SUBMIT button.

Process for Students Who Attended DACC More Than a Year Ago, but Didn’t Complete the Graduation Application

  1. Complete the paper graduation forms. We have one for certificates and another for associate degrees.
    1. Certificate Form
    2. Associate Degree Form

For ALL Applications to Graduate
Once your application is received, the Records Office will have the Advisement & Counseling Office review your progress toward the certificate and/or degree. DACC will send you a letter letting you know if you are on track to graduate or if you are still missing a requirement or two.

Please note, filling out this application does not sign you up to participate in our annual commencement program. If you are interested in participating in our ceremony, please visit for more information.
