Frequently Asked Questions for Graduation, Commencement Festivities, and everything in between.
Our very first Drive-In Grad Walk was held on Saturday, May 15. Students arrived with their families in as many cars as they desired and followed directions to our staging area, which they drove up to. The graduate exited the vehicle, received graduation materials, had their names read over a loudspeaker, had a photo taken, and walked across our staging area.
The Virtual Commencement Ceremony was released on May 29, 2021. It included every aspect of our traditional Commencement Ceremony, such as speeches from our executive and system leadership, video submissions from students and faculty, a keynote address, and much more. A virtual aspect may become a permanent part of the commencement tradition here at PPCC.
