Graduation/Commencement 2022

SCTCC is happy to announce that the 2022 Commencement ceremony will be held in person at River's Edge Convention Center. The ceremony will also be livestreamed via YouTube.


To help prevent the spread of Covid-19, we will be holding two ceremonies on Friday, May 13:

  • 11:00AM: Health and Trades graduates
  • 3:00PM: Liberal Arts and Business/IT/Education graduates

Students should arrive one hour prior to their ceremony.


As of now, masks will not be required, but everyone who would like to wear a mask is welcome to. Masks will be available at River's Edge. The masking requirement may change if CDC and MDH recommendations change.

Students: You need to apply for graduation to receive your degree! The Application for Graduation is now available. All students who have applied for graduation for fall 2021 and spring 2022 by April 15, 2022 will be included in the commencement program, livestream credits, and any public congratulations message.

Cap and Gown - Regalia

Students can purchase a cap, gown, tassel, and any honors cords at the SCTCC Bookstore, either online or in person.
