The College’s 97th Commencement Ceremony scheduled for May 16, 2020 has been cancelled due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Diplomas of all eligible 2020 graduates (without academic or financial holds) will be mailed to homes by June 1, 2020.

All 2020 graduates will be invited to participate in the College’s Commencement Exercises on May 15th, 2021. Qualified 2020 graduates will have the opportunity to be considered to serve as Student Commencement Speakers for the 2021 Exercises, and all 2020 graduates will be invited to process in academic attire in the Ceremony and receive the congratulations of the President, as well as be acknowledged for all academic awards earned by their 2020 graduation.

The College plans to celebrate the 2020 graduates in a special way on May 16, 2020 through the College’s website and social media accounts.

Graduation Fee (Refunds)

The $150 Graduation Fee has been charged to each 2020 Degree Recipient to cover the following expenses: 1) Academic Graduation Audits conducted by multiple departments to ensure that degree requirements are met, 2) cost of diploma and mailing the diploma to home addresses, 3) cost of academic attire, and 4) partial cost of the Commencement Ceremony.

Had the 2020 Commencement Ceremony not been postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic, every 2020 Degree Recipient would have been charged the Graduation Fee, regardless of whether or not the Degree Recipient was planning to participate in the Ceremony.

The same now holds true with the Ceremony postponed until May 15th, 2021. 2020 Degree Recipients have been charged the Graduation Fee in 2020, and 2021 Degree Recipients will be charged the fee in 2021. No refunds of the Graduation Fee will be made to 2020 or 2021 Degree Recipients. If they elect to take part in the 2021 Commencement Ceremony, 2020 Degree Recipients will not be charged an additional Graduation Fee in 2021.
