Graduation Day
Check-in for a graduate begins at 5:15 pm. Graduates must be in the lobby by 5:30 pm to be lined up for the processional with their cap and gown. The processional begins promptly at 6:30 pm. We ask that all guests be in their seats at this time for the faculty and the graduates to enter in grand fashion. Each graduate will have his or her name called as they walk across the stage and shake hands with the President of the College and the Chairperson of the College Board of Trustees.

A professional photographer is available to take pictures of each graduate as they receive their degree. The graduates must stay until the program ends with the recessional. Family and friends are asked to remain in their seats until the recessional is complete.

Please contact the Student Affairs Generalist if you should have any additional questions at 305-809-3196.
