Spring 2020 Commencement

As of May 8, 2020, it is too soon to determine whether we will be able to hold a traditional ceremony in August for our Fall 2019, Spring 2020, and Summer 2020 graduates. As we continue to monitor state and local guidelines, we will update you as more information becomes available. We hope to make a determination by early June.

If you have completed your graduation requirements at the end of spring term, you will receive your credentials (diploma, certificate).

Graduates, please know: We are so proud of your accomplishments. Even though we won’t be able to celebrate in May as we had initially planned, we want to make sure you are recognized for your hard work. 

We’re honoring our graduates on social media and would love to feature you. (Please contribute your story though this Sea Devil Grad Spotlight form so we can celebrate your achievements.) Second, we have created a tribute board for our grads . Your instructors and staff have written you messages and are sharing photos and memories. We invite you to contribute as well. We’ll also share on social media so your families and friends can post to the tribute wall. And finally, graduates will receive a special package in the mail after classes have ended. We are excited to celebrate you all — even from a distance.
Despite everything COVID-19 has taken away, please don’t let it stop you from achieving your goals. You’re at the end of an amazingly difficult semester; through it all, you’ve persevered. Let that fact encourage you. Now that you’ve accomplished this, you are more than ready to take the next step.
We wish you every success.
