Congratulations,

Class of 2020!

 

Honoring our SLCC Class of 2020 will look different this year than ever before, but here is how we are keeping everyone safe while still celebrating your accomplishments!

We are creating an online Commencement that will be available to watch beginning June 26. While an online ceremony can't replace a traditional in-person event, we still want to create a meaningful Commencement for those who want to participate.

If you would like to participate in this online Commencement, you will need to RSVP below. If you RSVP to participate, you will be included in the following:

  • During the online Commencement we will highlight you by reading your name accompanied with a slide of your name, and a photo.
  • You will receive a 2020 SLCC Celebration Graduation Package with contents to help you mark this milestone with friends and family.

The deadline to RSVP to be included in this online Commencement is Midnight, Monday, June 1st.

Please continue to check your email and this Commencement website for details and updates.

Again, congratulations on your graduation from Salt Lake Community College!

Graduation is a step-by-step process leading up to the receiving of your official degree. (If you haven’t applied for graduation yet, please apply online.) Contact the SLCC Graduation Office at 801-957-4035 if you need assistance.

Commencement refers to the ceremony, officiated by the President of Salt Lake Community College, which is an opportunity for the students to share the excitement and importance of their academic accomplishments with peers, family and friends.

The in-person SLCC Commencement often hosts thousands of graduates, staff, faculty, and guests. Due to the ever-changing circumstances around the regulations and guidelines of preventing the spread of COVID-19, SLCC has elected to host a digital commencement ceremony to protect our community and comply with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The online ceremony will be very similar to our traditional ceremony, including remarks from President Deneece Huftalin and SLCCSA President Mason Bancroft. You will hear your name read and when it’s time you will be prompted to turn your tassel on your mortar board cap to signify a ceremonial graduation.

RSVP’ing will let us know you would like to participate in the online ceremony and receive our SLCC Graduation Celebration Package.

You will receive items in the Graduation Package that will help you celebrate at home. We’ll also include a slide with your name, photo, and degree or certificate you have earned. Our professional announcers will also say your name as your slide is onscreen.
