Congratulations to the Class of 2020!

A total of 431 candidates for associate degrees and certificates were recognized at a special virtual ceremony on Friday, May 15, 2020. Seventy eight of these students completed their programs entirely online through the Internet Academy.

President Cathleen McColgin addressed the graduates and said, “The current situation, while difficult in so many ways, will help shape your future. It will make you stronger, more resilient, resourceful, creative and adaptable. All of you have persevered through an extremely challenging time. You and your families have much to be proud of and the future is yours to create.”

Diplomas for spring 2020 graduates are expected to ship out during the week of August 10th. There have been several delays this year due to the pandemic. Many students initially received incompletes for Spring 2020 classes delaying the certification of graduates. Additionally, we are mailing diploma covers with the diplomas (normally they would be handed out to graduates at commencement). Special mailers were required to fit the covers, and due to COVID, there were delays in getting the mailers from the vendor. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
