Masks and Fully Vaccinated Status, for Graduates and Guests, are Mandatory

Due to the rise in COVID numbers, masks will be mandatory. Each graduate will still be allotted 4 tickets. Please only distribute your tickets to those who are vaccinated.  The Ceremony  will be available via Zoom for those who are unable to attend in person, for any reason, including these restrictions.  Guests will be required to show proof of vaccination. A physical copy of the guest’s vaccination card, or a digital record (including a photo, or online vaccination record), is acceptable. Graduates will not be required to show proof of vaccination, since records are already on file with the College.
