Attention Fall 2022, Spring 2023 and Summer 2023 Grads

Metropolitan Community College’s 2023 commencement ceremony will be held Thursday, May 18, at Cable Dahmer Arena in Independence.

This year, we are holding two commencement ceremonies – one at 1 p.m. and one at 6 p.m. Graduates will have the opportunity to choose the ceremony time they prefer to attend. With the addition of two ceremonies, grads will be able to invite all family and friends to attend, no tickets required.  
Candidates for graduation should have received a text message inviting you to participate in commencement. Grads can use the link provided to complete two important steps:  

  • Register for the commencement ceremony of your choice.
    • Registering for commencement will ensure you receive reminders and event updates. You will also have the ability to easily share announcements and commencement information with your friends and family.
  • Sign up for a Grad Bag event.
    • During the Grad Bag event, you will receive your complimentary cap and gown, tassel, an MCC graduation medallion and five graduation announcements.

If, for any reason, you did not receive the text message, you can complete the online form to RSVP.  
We are proud of your accomplishments and can’t wait to see you at commencement! Please email with any questions.
