Commencement Information

Commencement is the formal celebration of the degree you have earned. It is a time for you to receive well-deserved recognition for your hard work and to celebrate your accomplishment. Please RSVP to let us know that you will be attending the Commencement Ceremony.

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.
