Commencement Information

Commencement is the formal celebration of the degree you have earned. This year, we will celebrate the class of 2020 and the class of 2021 with a combined Commencement Ceremony. It is a time for you to receive well-deserved recognition for your hard work and to celebrate your accomplishment. Please RSVP today to let us know that you will be attending the Commencement Ceremony. For planning purposes, the RSVP deadline is April 23, 2021.

Participation in the Commencement Ceremony is optional and does not indicate that you have met the requirements to receive your degree.

A review and determination of your graduation status will be made after final grades are posted. Diplomas are not distributed at the ceremony. They will be mailed to the mailing address in your MyTMCC Student Center.

Date and Location

We’ve been diligently tracking COVID-19 related information and safety mandates from the Governor’s Office, the Washoe County Health District, as well as from our own TMCC Environmental Health and Safety Office.

Due to the continued moratorium on large public gatherings, and in consideration of your health and safety, TMCC will be conducting the 2021 Commencement Ceremony as a drive-through event.

Graduates from the class of 2020 (Fall 2019, Spring and Summer 2020) and the class of 2021 (Fall 2020, Spring and Summer 2021) are invited to participate in the combined Class of 2020 and 2021 Commencement Ceremony.

The drive-through ceremony will be held at the TMCC Dandini Campus, 7000 Dandini Blvd., Reno, NV and will take place from May 17 through May 21, 2021.

This year graduates will attend the ceremony by Academic Division:

  • May 17: Technical Sciences
  • May 18: Business and Social Sciences
  • May 19: Life Sciences, Allied Health and Public Safety
  • May 20: Math and Physical Sciences
  • May 21: Liberal Arts

Your RSVP will let us know that you intend to participate in the ceremony, and we will use this information to assign you a specific day/time for you and your guests to drive through.

Keep your email address and contact information current with TMCC so that we can continue to update you. If you have any changes, please email us and include your name, TMCC student ID number and updated information, so that we can keep your record current.

Everyone at TMCC, including your academic faculty, leadership, and staff, is eager to celebrate with you in May 2021. If you have questions, please feel free to email us.
