Virtual Graduation Scheduled for May 16

Vol State joined the national effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus to help protect the health and safety of our students and community by transitioning the remainder of the spring semester to online instruction. As a result, our traditional May Commencement Ceremony for spring graduates was cancelled. Commencement is a tradition we value as it celebrates the achievement of our students as well as the support and sacrifices of their families. It is also a time for us as employees to acknowledge the fulfillment of our mission and core values.  In an effort to still celebrate this important milestone for our graduates, Vol State is excited to announce that we will be hosting a virtual Commencement Ceremony on May 16, 2020! The virtual format will still provide our graduates the individual and personalized recognition they deserve while also giving them an exciting opportunity to contribute personal content by submitting a photo and message to be included in their individual slide. Additional instructions and details regarding participating in the virtual ceremony will be shared with eligible students via their student email within the next couple of weeks. Spring 2020 graduates that would also like to participate in an in-person commencement ceremony will be invited to participate in the December 12, 2020 ceremony and should continue to check their student email through the month of October for important details.
