An annual graduation ceremony is held at the conclusion of the spring semester. Participation in commencement exercises is ceremonial only and is no guarantee of receiving a certificate and/or degree. Students who complete or are targeted to complete their certificate/degree requirements in the Fall, Spring or Summer semester of that same academic year are eligible to participate in the May graduation. You should notify the Registrar's Office if you wish to participate in the commencement ceremony. Instructions for graduation are given to all candidates prior to commencement. The college may schedule additional graduation ceremonies.
