Graduation and Commencement

  • Congratulations to the Graduating Class!

    Graduation refers to actually receiving a certificate/degree after the College has verified that all requirements have been met.

    Commencement is a ceremony for students, families and friends to celebrate the student’s academic accomplishment. Participation in commencement does not mean that a student has graduated and students do not receive diplomas on that day.
