Graduation Ceremony Cancelled

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Minnesota State has notified colleges and universities that all large events planned for more than 50 people are cancelled until further notice. Unfortunately, commencement/graduation ceremonies across all system campuses, including Century College, are impacted. As such, our commencement ceremony scheduled for Friday, May 15, 2020, at Aldrich Arena has been cancelled.

Our commencement ceremony is a wonderful opportunity for students and their families to celebrate well-deserved accomplishments and for Century faculty, staff and administration to acknowledge the same. Please be assured that graduating students will still receive their diplomas and covers either in the mail or through another option that will be communicated no later than May 1. Even though the traditional ceremony will not be held, Century College honors your hard work, perseverance, and accomplishment and we are exploring ways in which we would be able to celebrate our graduates. Please stay tuned for more details. 

All graduates still need to apply for graduation to receive your diploma. Click here for more details.
