Diplomas are mailed approximately 6 weeks after the degree/certificate is posted. Only one diploma cover will be issued per student.

The Commencement Ceremony will be conducted rain or shine. In the event of severe storms and heavy rains the procession may be canceled and moved to the next day. If the storms are severe enough to postpone the ceremony, the rain date will be announced. The postponement will be announced on the College website and in a Regroup Alert.

 

If you or any of your guests are physically challenged please contact Student Accessibility Services no later than two weeks prior to the ceremony.
