    Fall 2020 Virtual Commencement

    Celebrate SPC’s Fall 2020 graduates at our virtual commencement ceremony on Saturday, Dec. 12. This online event will include remarks from SPC President Dr. Tonjua Williams, student speakers and the formal conferral of degrees.

    Due to health concerns involving COVID-19, the college is providing this opportunity for a socially distant, safe ceremony in place of a physical gathering.

    Want your name included in the ceremony’s graduate roll call?

    Graduating students who want to be recognized and have their name announced during the ceremony must register online by Friday, Nov. 6. PLEASE NOTE: There are no exceptions to this deadline.

    Looking for additional ceremony information?

    Event updates will be emailed directly to registered student attendees via their MySPC student account.

    Further details about the ceremony, including where to watch the event, also will be provided on the college’s website. Check for new information over the next few weeks.
