2020 Commencement set for Aug. 22
Peninsula College officials have researched what the other colleges in the region are doing and are closely monitoring the pandemic in preparation for a graduation celebration in August. By now, hopefully most grads have ordered their apparel. If you haven't, please fill out the graduation application link (below) and then contact the book store to inquire about a special order.
We are planning a drive-up event for grads to pick up apparel on July 23 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the parking lot at the main campus, as well as our Forks and Port Townsend campuses. We are expecting lines at 11, so if you are able to come at 12 or 1 please do so to reduce wait times. Grads who cannot make it on July 23 can still arrange to pick up their apparel by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once our 2020 grads have their apparel, we're going to ask them to email us a photo wearing their cap and gown so we can prepare a slide show. Details about how to do that will be in an instruction sheet that will accompany your apparel.
In the meantime, we'll continue to wok on planning an appropriate and safe commencement event on Aug. 22. The 2020 graducation ceremony was postponed following a survey of our grads, who said they would rather postpone it in hopes of some sort of in-person event, rather than to have a virtual event in June.
Graduation at Peninsula College is a three-step process consisting of:
- Submitting an Degree/Graduation Application form.
- Completing all academic requirements for your degree.
- Settling all financial obligations.
If you have not filled out the Degree/Graduation Application, please do so immediately or contact your student advisor with any questions.
Individuals should apply for graduation one quarter in advance of the quarter they anticipate graduating if possible, but Peninsula College will make every effort to accommodate you should you decide later in your journey to participate in Commencement. The Degree/Graduation Application, with any approved substitutions signed by a program advisor, should be submitted online or returned to Student Services as soon as possible in the quarter. Student Services will perform a final review authorizing graduation or pointing out any deficiencies that must be overcome.
