Given the continued occupancy limitations and health and safety measures due to this pandemic, Century College will be hosting a virtual graduation this year for graduates from Summer 2020, Fall 2020, and Spring 2021. The virtual graduation ceremony will be hosted on Friday, May 14that 7pm, 2021 on the Graduates, family members, and guests, as well as the Century College community of faculty, staff, and administrators, will all be invited to attend a virtual gathering where we can celebrate graduation together. The virtual graduation video will be posted online for graduates to view and share afterwards.
We recognize that this will be disappointing for many as our commencement ceremony is a wonderful opportunity for students and their families to celebrate their well-deserved accomplishments and for Century faculty, staff and administration to acknowledge the same. Even though the traditional in-person ceremony will not be held, Century College honors your hard work, perseverance, and accomplishment.
