Modified Plans for 2021 Commencement Ceremonies

Crowne Centre Auditorium
Last Updated February 26, 2021

PCC understands the importance of celebration on the momentous occasion of completing a college degree. We’ve gone to extraordinary lengths to provide a modified Commencement plan that will enable in-person ceremonies, and family and friends are invited to attend! Graduations will be divided by academic departments over a 2-day period.

To provide space for visiting families and friends of graduating students, those who are not graduating this spring will not be required to attend the ceremonies.

Plans for the Forty-Sixth Commencement may be adjusted or changed to reflect current health conditions at the time.
