June 2 or June 3, 2022

Congratulations to our graduating students who have persisted and completed their educational goals during these challenging times! Commencement is a special occasion that graduates, families, guests, and the campus community look forward to celebrating each year. We are excited to announce that College of the Canyons will offer two options that will allow graduates the opportunity to choose the graduation format that works best for them and their guests. In order to accommodate as many graduates in as safe a manner as possible, those wishing to participate in this year’s graduation festivities may select ONE of the following graduation ceremony formats to participate in.

  • Grad Walk is a walk-through graduation which provides an opportunity for graduates to wear their cap and gown while walking across the graduation stage with their guests.  Each graduate will have their name read and a picture taken by a professional photographer.  The Grad Walk is a walk-through experience that is estimated to last 30 minutes from start to finish. Graduates will be allowed a maxium of 6 guests

    Grad Walk will be held on Thursday, June 2, 2022 in the Honor Grove with 30 minute time slots available between 3:00pm-7:00pm.
  • For those who do not wish or are unable to participate in the Grad Walk, College of the Canyons will also hold a traditional seated ceremony on Friday, June 3, 2022 in the Honor Grove at 8:00am.  Graduates will need to check-in no later than 6:45am dressed in their cap & gown.  The traditional graduation ceremony is estimated to last 2-3 hours and conclude by 11:00am.  Graduates will be allowed a maxium of 2 guests

We sincerely hope you decide to reward yourself and acknowledge your academic accomplishments by attending one of the graduation celebrations.
