Commencement Ceremony

TCC will host its first-ever December in-person commencement ceremony for its Summer and Fall 2021 graduates.

The Ceremony will take place on Saturday, December 11, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. at the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center at 505 West Pensacola Street.

Note: The College will also be inviting its 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 alumni family of graduates if they would like the opportunity to participate in a live ceremony. Those graduates were limited to virtual-only ceremonies due to the pandemic. More information will follow on the Commencement web page by August and information will be sent to the graduate’s personal email address on file. All prior year graduates will be required to register to participate in the ceremony so that we can ensure appropriate seating and provide all commencement updates throughout the fall term.


Students eligible to participate in the ceremony:

• Summer 2021 graduates
• Fall 2021 graduates
• This December only, students who graduated during the pandemic will be invited to participate in the in-person commencement.


Participation in commencement does not constitute the completion of graduation requirements.
