Del Mar College COVID-19 UPDATE
Wednesday, April 22, 2020 (2:30 p.m.)


The COVID-19 pandemic has created an especially challenging semester for Del Mar College students. To celebrate our Spring 2020 graduates, we’re hosting a first-ever Virtual Commencement Ceremony at 7 p.m. Friday, May 29, via the College’s Facebook and YouTube channels.

Graduating students are encouraged to participate by completing the form by April 30. The virtual ceremony promises to be a fun and memorable event with graduate tributes submitted by DMC faculty, staff and students themselves.

Spring 2020 graduates will also have the opportunity to walk the stage during a future commencement ceremony, to be scheduled when the COVID-19 situation permits.
