We know how important Commencement is for students, therefore, the decision has been made to allow our graduates and their families to attend Commencement, whether they are vaccinated against COVID-19 or not

From the start of the pandemic, we have prioritized the health and safety of our entire community as best we could. This has not changed; however, many of our graduates completed their education requirements before the College instituted its vaccination mandate in January 2022. To make this day as equitable as possible, we want to make sure every graduate who wants to, has a chance to walk across the stage.

Although we are not requiring vaccination to attend the ceremonies, we do have a few alternative options that unvaccinated graduates and guests will be required to adhere to that will keep the event as safe as possible:

  • Wear a mask when indoors at all times  - OR -
  • Show proof of negative PCR COVID-19 test result taken no more than 24 hours before event
