After considerable deliberation and in consultation with public health officials, the decision has been made to postpone this year’s commencement ceremony until next year. Commencement is the highlight of the year at CCV, when more than 3,000 Vermonters come together to celebrate the accomplishments of our graduates. Sadly, the COVID-19 health crisis has caused disruption and uncertainty. It is unclear when large gatherings will be safe or whether crowds will be permitted to gather in the summer or fall.
We invite our fall 2019 and spring 2020 graduates to participate in next year’s ceremony to be held on Saturday, June 5, 2021 at Norwich University.
Norwich University, Northfield, Vermont • Saturday, June 5, 2021, 2 pm
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 August 31, 2020. Any student who successfully passes the alternative assessment during this time will have met the QR graduation standard. This alternative is available for the spring and summer 2020 semesters only. Spring graduates must successfully pass the assessment on or before May 17. Summer graduates must successfully pass the assessment on or before August 21. 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.
