Student Services Update: Commencement

Cerro Coso Community College shield logo

Cerro Coso has been working hard on evaluating options for our 2020 graduation as we understand the importance of this event for our students, families and the college.  We apologize for not communicating more quickly, but have tried to maximize the possibility for a meaningful experience for our students who have worked so hard to achieve certificates and degrees.  It is heartbreaking to have to communicate that we will be moving to a virtual graduation to maintain everyone's health and safety in this uncertain time.  That being said, Cerro Coso staff, faculty, and administration are committed to maintaining a ceremony that reflects the personal, meaningful traditions that have always characterized our graduation ceremonies. In order to accomplish this, we are postponing graduation to June 13th.

This message is meant as a “Save the Date” and to encourage you, your family, and your friends to join us in celebrating you!  We promise it will be worth it!  You will receive more information shortly, which includes a response we will need from you.  We will also have scheduled pick-up dates for those of you who have special regalia items.  Please watch your email for updates shortly.  Do not hesitate to reach out if you have questions and we will do our best to answer!  Feel free to use the email for questions about graduation.

Thank you for all of the flexibility and resiliency you have exhibited, as well as your patience while Cerro Coso has responded to this unprecedented time.  We are so proud of our CC Coyotes!

Stay tuned for more information soon.  Good luck on finals!
