Event Details

The commencement ceremonies are an appropriate conclusion to a successful academic career at Sierra College. The educational success that the award of an Associate degree represents demonstrates considerable sacrifice, hard work and commitment.

The ceremony itself takes place once a year at the end of the Spring semester. All students who complete a degree in either Fall, Spring or Summer of that academic year are eligible to attend. You must have submitted a degree petition to the Admissions and Records Office by the appropriate deadline. Participation in commencement does not guarantee a degree. The College bookstore will have caps, gowns and tassels available for purchase.

There is not a limit to the number of guests that you can invite to the outdoor ceremony, but in the event of rain, the ceremony will be held inside.
