About the December Ceremony

The December Graduates Recognition Ceremony is a chance for the College to celebrate the achievements of those completing their studies during the fall semester. The ceremony is less formal than the May Commencement, with students not wearing caps and gowns in December, but each graduating student will be recognized. The ceremony generally lasts about an hour, with light refreshments following.

While tickets are not needed for guests, we ask that all students that plan to participate in the ceremony RSVP online through a quick, four-question survey. Students eligible to participate will receive a postcard from the College in November.  

Important note: Students graduating in December will also be invited back to campus to participate in the formal Commencement Ceremony in May, 2020.


If you have questions or concerns, please contact:
