Celebrating Student Success

2020 Commencement: Moving to Virtual Ceremony

We are determined to celebrate the Class of 2020. Your hard work, dedication, and perseverance deserves recognition! We are exploring options for streaming and a shared virtual celebration.

Every year we gather together to celebrate the successes and achievements of Green River College graduates. This year's celebration will look different than in years past Due to the ongoing pandemic, we will celebrate the 2020 Commencement Ceremony virtually.

Graduates are highly encouraged to register for the 2020 Commencement Ceremony (using their GRC student email address) [Note: Registration is now closed]. Even if graduates cannot participate virtually on the day of the ceremony, graduates who register will be able to create a personalized graduation card and have their name read by one of Green River College's faculty readers.
