2020 Commencement Ceremony

Commencement is perhaps the most sacred event in higher education. It is the highest symbolic event we have to honor our student’s accomplishments. But we also need to keep the health of our students, faculty, staff, and the greater community in the forefront. Too much significant planning and resources are required at this point to be confident in our ability to hold the event in person.

Rather than cancelling or postponing Commencement MWCC will be holding a virtual Commencement Ceremony. The ceremony will include all aspects of the traditional commencement ceremony including the speakers, the awards, and the reading of the names of the graduates. It will be held on the same day and time as scheduled. More information will be forthcoming in coming weeks.

We understand this year's commencement is not the same, which is why we are inviting you to participate in our May 2021 Commencement ceremony.  It’s important to us that any student who wants to walk across that stage be able to have that opportunity!

If you have any questions or are having difficulty ordering your cap and gown, please contact Student Services by email at studentservices@mwcc.mass.edu.
