Graduation Day – Student Information

Commencement is the highlight of the year at CCV, when more than 3,000 Vermonters typically come together to celebrate the accomplishments of our graduates. Due to ongoing uncertainties around public gatherings, we have not yet made a decision about what shape our 2021 commencement will take. We are closely monitoring state and local health guidelines to plan a safe, celebratory event for our graduates, and hope to announce details soon.

In the meantime, please save the date of Saturday, June 5 for a joint celebration of the classes of 2020 and 2021, and continue checking this page for updates throughout the spring.

2021 Commencement
Norwich University, Northfield, Vermont • Saturday, June 5, 2021, 2 pm

Student FAQs

Am I still required to take the QR Assessment even though CCV centers are closed?

CCV will provide an online alternative assessment that can be completed remotely from any location through May 23, 2021. Any student who successfully passes the alternative assessment during this time will have met the QR graduation standard. This alternative is available for the fall 2020 and spring 2021 semesters only. Fall graduates must successfully pass the assessment on or before December 21, 2020. Spring graduates must successfully pass the assessment on or before May 23, 2021. Students should contact their advisor with questions.

When will I receive my diploma?

Your associate degree will still be conferred this spring, and you can expect to receive your diploma and transcript in the mail by early June.

I already ordered my cap and gown. What will happen to my order?

All 2020 cap and gown orders have been cancelled with the supplier. Graduates who are able to join us for the ceremony on June 5, 2021 will need to reorder their cap and gown next year. We will send a reminder and a link to the order form next spring.

I would like a cap and gown to wear for photos. Can I still get one?

Any graduate who would like a cap and gown delivered to their home this May should make that request using this form by Friday, May 1. Caps, gowns, and tassels will be delivered via UPS by the end of May.
