Preparing For Completion

Commencement Exercises are held at the end of each fall and spring semester for all students who have earned a degree or diploma* since the previous commencement. Fall completers participate in fall ceremonies. Spring and Summer completers participate in spring ceremonies

Commencement is a symbolic ceremony that marks your academic achievement.  It is an opportunity for you, your family and friends and WTCC to celebrate your achievement.  Participation is not required. You must order and pay for regalia by the posted deadlines in order to participate in the commencement ceremony.

Graduation (Completion) is the certified completion of your diploma/degree program requirements.  It is not a ceremony.  When you apply for completion, you are not registering for any ceremony.
