Graduation 2020 Updates

Posted 4/29/20 - 1:20 p.m. EDT

One of the most gratifying and exciting moments in our academic year is our Commencement ceremony, when we celebrate your success in reaching your goals with us. All of us, ECTC administration, faculty, staff, and especially students and families, are saddened and disappointed that, due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are unable to be together for this momentous occasion.

After much deliberation, discussion with students, and on advice from health and government officials, ECTC has decided to postpone spring graduation, originally scheduled for May 11, 2020, until December 2020. All students eligible to graduate following Summer and Fall 2019, and Spring, Summer, and Fall 2020 semesters will be invited to participate with cap and gown in this unprecedented ceremony later in the year.

Conferring of degrees and certificates WILL NOT be affected by the commencement ceremony postponement. Degrees and certificates will be awarded to students who have satisfactorily completed all requirements of their respective degrees and/or certificates. You will receive your diploma in the mail six to eight weeks after the end of the spring 2020 semester.

We will stay in touch with details as they are formalized, and we look forward to celebrating with you and your families in December.
