Commencement 2023

Congratulations Graduates! Commencement 2023 will be Friday, May 12th at 3pm outside at Century College on the West Campus. Students who have completed their degree during Summer 2022, Fall 2022, and those who have applied to graduate for Spring 2023 and Summer 2023 are invited to attend.

Weather Conditions: We will review the weather predictions on the days leading up to the ceremony and will make a decision to pivot to virtual based on what is known at that time. If the decision is to proceed, we will review again the morning of the commencement to ensure that our outdoor ceremony can proceed as planned. All changes will be communicated via email and on the college website.
