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. After many weeks of careful consideration, and given the ongoing unpredictability of the pandemic and the need to continue following Department of Health guidelines as they evolve, we have made the decision to adapt the format of our 2021 commencement. On June 5, we will honor the classes of 2020 and 2021 with a virtual celebration.
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.
What will the virtual celebration look like?
Our celebration will include remarks from CCV President Joyce Judy, Governor Phil Scott, and our student speakers. We will also acknowledge a number of awardees from across the state. The Graduation Committee is putting together slideshows for each of our academic centers, so graduates will receive an email inviting them to submit a photo. All of these pieces will live on a custom graduation website. Check back soon for a link to the page. We will also celebrate our graduates with a few fun surprises!
When will I be able to order my cap and gown?
The deadline for ordering a cap and gown has passed. Grads will be notified via email when caps and gowns are available for pick up at centers.
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 mid June.
Am I still required to take the QR Assessment?
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.
