Congratulations, class of 2020!
Metropolitan Community College cordially invites you to our virtual commencement at 7 p.m. on Friday, June 5.
Soon, you will receive an email from MarchingOrder with detailed information about how to create a profile for participation in virtual commencement, including how to upload a photo and personal message to your virtual diploma. Your personalized, virtual-diploma slide will then be shared on the commencement website starting at ceremony time on June 5.
Once you have personalized your slide through MarchingOrder, you will receive an email (the week of May 25) with details about where and when you can pick up your Grad Bag. Each complimentary Grad Bag will contain a diploma cover and congratulatory letter from Chancellor Kimberly Beatty, a 2020 tassel, an MCC graduation medallion and five graduation announcements. Grad Bags (and the email about curbside pickup) will only be distributed to those students who choose to participate by creating a profile on the virtual commencement website.
Like you, we are disappointed that current circumstances prevent us from gathering at this time to celebrate your achievements with a traditional, in-person commencement ceremony. However, we want you to know that we are making every effort to honor you and the hard work and commitment you put forth to reach this important milestone. In addition to this virtual commencement event, you will also be invited to walk in MCC’s next in-person commencement ceremony, planned for May of 2021. Details about 2021 commencement will be sent out next spring.
