Alexandria Technical and Community College provides commencement as an option for students graduating with certificates, diplomas and degrees.

In order for students to qualify for participation in the ceremony, they must have met all the program requirements by the end of the upcoming Summer Semester. They must also be in good academic standing.

Students who complete their graduation requirements at the end of Fall Semester may participate in the commencement ceremony the following spring if they choose to do so.

Participation in commencement exercises does not constitute actual graduation from the program. Diploma covers will be issued at the commencement ceremony. Actual degrees, diplomas, and certificates will be mailed within six to eight weeks after the completion of all graduation requirements.

Note: College commencement exercises will be held at the end of the spring semester. The Law Enforcement program will hold its own commencement in May. Practical Nursing will have two commencement exercises—one in July and one in December.
