Important Commencement Reminders
Schenectady County Community College's 43rd Commencement Ceremony will be held on Thursday, May 23, 2013, from 4 – 6 p.m. at Proctors, located in downtown Schenectady.
Congratulations to Schenectady County Community College 2013 Graduates!
Commencement is truly a celebration of the future. The hard work and effort you have demonstrated in order to secure your degree shows a commitment to excellence that will serve you well as you continue to achieve your goals. You can be rightfully proud of your success and accomplishment. We are very proud of you! Congratulations!
A light fare, post-Commencement reception will follow at Key Hall (located next to the theater). At the post-Commencement reception, graduates and their families can share this special moment with the faculty and staff members who have assisted them along their journey. There is no formal program during the reception, therefore it is not mandatory, but we encourage you to attend.
Graduates should arrive at 3 p.m. and will line up outside of the back entrance to Proctors (the entrance closest to the Parking Garage, NOT the State Street entrance). Guests should go directly to the theater to be seated. (Grads, remember to bring with you: your cap and gown and your name card.)
Order your cap and gown from the College Store. No orders will be accepted after Friday, April 12.
Pick up your cap and gown, Commencement invitations and tickets between Tuesday, April 23, and Wednesday, May 22, in the College Store.
Along with your cap and gown, you will receive four Commencement invitations and four tickets. Additional tickets will be available on Monday, May 6, in the College Store (first-come, first-served).
