Preparations are underway for an exceptional virtual Commencement experience in May 2021. Each graduate will have an opportunity to submit personalized materials for this professional and exciting event! You will be able to purchase a cap and gown if you choose, before you submit your photo or mini-video.

Return to this website for further details as the date gets closer. We will reach out to all graduating students to invite you to participate. You will need to apply for graduation and follow the guidelines provided. All graduates will receive their diplomas in the mail in the weeks following the ceremony.

Why a virtual commencement?
Even with a vaccine beginning to be distributed, the research we have done tells us we will not be able to safely hold large in-person gatherings any time in the coming months. We wanted to provide a memorable and enjoyable experience for our graduates, so we have chosen a partner called StageClip to help us produce the 2021 ceremony.

Who can participate?
Fall 2020, Winter 2021, and Summer 2021 eligible graduates receiving an associate or bachelor's degree are eligible. We will also extend an invitation to our 2019-2020 graduating class, because we were not able to hold Commencement ceremonies in 2020.
