Our resources and services are designed to prepare students for their special day, making sure each student has their moment of celebration.

Please contact Student Services at studentservices@stcl.edu with questions.

For questions, contact the Bookstore at sm541@bncollege.com.

Graduating students receive e-mails from Office of Student Engagement containing detailed instructions and information about the ceremonies. These e-mails include all documents related to graduation. Please contact Office of Student Engagement at studentengagement@stcl.edu with any questions.

A special part of the graduation ceremony is the hooding of new graduates by alumni relatives instead of faculty hoodmasters. Among our guest hooders are parents, spouses, siblings, grandparents, significant others, aunts, uncles, and cousins of the graduates. Guest hooders are required to be graduates of STCL Houston.

All graduates will be professionally photographed by Marc Nathan Photographers, Inc.  You will have a photo taken on the stage as you shake Dean Barry’s hand and a portrait taken off stage after you’ve been hooded. If you have a guest hooder, you’ll also have a portrait taken with them. Photos will be available on Tuesday after the ceremony. In order for us to contact the graduate after the event, we need you to Pre-Register prior to the ceremony by giving us your email, cell phone and physical address by going to this link.

We request this be done by May 19th which is the deadline to register.

If you have any questions, please contact grads@mnathanphoto.com or call (281) 549-2367 ext 2.

Graduates must complete all obligations before their diplomas are mailed. This includes applying for graduation via Stanley, completing the Financial Aid Exit Interview and Group Counseling Session, completing the Graduate Employment Survey, and having a zero balance. Diplomas will be mailed to the address provided when you apply for graduation.

If, once you have applied, you wish to change the address to which your diploma is sent, you may do so by submitting a Change of Name and Address. Address changes made via Stanley do not change your diploma mailing address. If you have changed your address online, you must also submit a change of Name and Address form with the box next to “Diploma Address” checked.

Graduates may order a replacement diploma by completing the Diploma Reorder Form and sending it to Student Services with their $50 payment. Online payment can be made here.
