MCC reschedules graduation to December

Monroe Community College plans to hold its 2020 graduation ceremonies in early December instead of May due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The May 30 commencement has tentatively been rescheduled to Dec. 3. mcc-logo

The decision to delay commencement is heart-wrenching but necessary to ensure the well-being and safety of our students, their families, faculty, staff, and the Greater Rochester community. I fully understand and share our students’ disappointment over the change in plans,” said MCC Interim President Katherine Douglas. “However, our students’ hard work, resilience and achievements at MCC will not go unrecognized. I am committed to seeing our students experience the distinctive tradition of walking across the stage in December and celebrating with them this significant milestone in their lives.”

Douglas made the announcement Thursday afternoon. Approximately 2,000 students are expected to graduate. The ceremony typically takes place in the Blue Cross Arena at the War Memorial.  

Additional details about the graduation, and about end-of-year events that are being moved online will be shared later, the college said.
