Important Information Regarding Clarkson College Graduation Ceremony

Congratulations on your accomplishment and thank you for choosing Clarkson College for your health care education! The health and well-being of our students, faculty and staff, as well as any visitors to our campus and local, national and global communities, is of utmost concern. Based on current information regarding COVID-19 and the most recent local and national health reports and directives, the Executive Leadership Team at Clarkson College has decided to cancel the Spring graduation ceremony scheduled for Saturday, May 2, 2020. Students will be mailed their diploma the week of May 11 to the address on file in the Registrar’s office. 

Although the Spring graduation ceremony is not taking place, currently the Summer graduation ceremony is still planned for Saturday, August 8, 2020. We are tremendously proud of our graduating class and would like for you to experience walking the stage with your fellow graduates. Therefore, we are offering all Spring graduates the opportunity to attend the Summer graduation if you desire. 

If you wish to attend the Summer graduation, please notify the Registrar’s office via the form below and mark your calendar to celebrate this exciting milestone achievement with us. If you have already ordered your cap and gown, we will honor this order and move it to the Summer graduation ceremony. If you choose not to attend the Summer graduation and have already paid for your graduation regalia, please rest assured those charges will be refunded. To finalize this process, please complete the following form regarding your attendance for the Summer 2020 ceremony.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation during these extenuating circumstances. We are very proud of you and wish you much success in your future in health care as you continue to practice the Clarkson College Values of Caring, Commitment, Excellence, Learning and Integrity.
