2020 Commencement

This year’s graduation and commencement are history making! Here's details for our first ever Virtual Commencement: 

Video Ceremonies

Commencement ceremonies including traditional speeches, music and the reading of every graduate’s name. These videos will air on each college’s Facebook pages as Facebook Live events on the date and time the ceremonies were originally scheduled:

They will also appear on the Eastern Iowa Community Colleges Facebook page on the respective dates and times.

Videos will also be available on the college YouTube channels.


Commencement Program & Honor Cords

A special commemorative four-color Commencement Program will be mailed to all of our graduates during the week of May 10, prior to the ceremonies. That mailing will also include honor cords and a congratulatory note from faculty.

Diploma & Tassels

After your final class grades are posted and your academic award verified, we will officially confer your degree.  We will mail your diploma and tassel after the posting of your award. If you are a Spring 2020 grad, you can anticipate receiving your diploma in the mail around mid-June. If you are a Summer 2020 grad, you can anticipate receiving your diploma in mid-August. 

Reception and Celebration - Details to Come

In addition to celebrating virtually with you, we are looking forward to hosting a reception for our 2020 grads.  The reception will take place on campus with faculty and staff, an opportunity for photos in caps and gowns and of course some graduation cake. We will wait to set the date based on the community social distancing and group event recommendations. You will receive the invitation later this year and we will look forward to celebrating together.
