June 2 to 5, 2021

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 be providing a combination of in-person and virtual elements this year to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of this year’s graduates in a safe manner that adheres to state and county health safety regulations. Graduates will be able to participate in one of several scheduled walk-through graduations while walking across the graduation stage. 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 20-30 minutes from start to finish. Traditional ceremony speeches will be pre-recorded and made available to view online.

We sincerely hope that the graduates will reward themselves and acknowledge their academic accomplishments by participating in this year’s commencement festivities.
