Administrators at Southwestern Community College (SWCC) have decided to combine spring and summer commencement ceremonies for the 2019-20 academic year. All students graduating from SWCC during the 2019-20 academic year will be invited to participate in the Friday, May 8, 2020, commencement, at 7:30 p.m., in the Student Center gymnasium.
Historically, the majority of summer graduates at SWCC were nursing students and with changes in the licensed practical nursing (LPN) program, all LPN students now complete their programs in May. All summer graduates will now be encouraged to participate in the May ceremony. Degrees will be conferred and awarded upon date of completion for all students.
