The Graduation Fairs for December Commencement will be scheduled later in the fall.  Dates will be announced soon.


Each graduate who is participating in the graduation ceremony will receive twelve guest tickets. You will pick up your tickets when you pick up your cap, gown, and tassel.

Cap, Gown, Tassel

Each curriculum graduate who is participating in the graduation ceremony will receive a cap, gown, and graduation year  tassel. Curriculum students have a navy blue cap and gown. GED graduates need to purchase black caps and gowns. 

College curriculum graduates who have earned a program grade-point average of 3.5  or above in their diploma or degree program (with all grades “C” or higher) will receive a gold cord when they pick up their cap and gown. 

No decorative attachments may be worn on your gown. Phi Theta Kappa,  Phi Beta Lambda, and Sigma Alpha Pi, which are recognized honor societies, may wear appropriate pins, stoles and chords.
