Graduation

Graduates gather after the commencement ceremony

 

Commencement: It is unfortunate that we must announce the cancellation of our May commencement ceremony and other recognition ceremonies due to COVID-19 precautionary measures, to include the Center For Workplace Learning Graduation and Recognition Ceremony, Associate Degree Nurse Pinning and other health science and workforce celebrations. It is our sincerest hope that graduates will walk the stage during a future commencement ceremony. Please note: students will still graduate. Degrees will be conferred to those who have earned them, so students should continue to complete applications for graduation through their Success Coach or Faculty Advisor
