    2024 Commencement Ceremony

    Clackamas Community College will be hosting a Commencement Ceremony for our graduates on Friday, June 14, 2024 on the Oregon City campus.

    Further information (including cap and gown information) will be posted here in April 2024.

    All summer, fall and winter graduates and spring applicants for graduation will also receive an emailed invitation to the commencement ceremony inviting them to the ceremony in April.

Ceremony details

This ceremony will be open to all summer 2023, fall 2023, winter 2024 GED, Adult High School, college degree/certificate graduates and spring 2024 applicants for graduation, as well as any student who plans to graduate in summer of 2024 and does not wish to wait for the 2025 ceremony.

This will be an outdoor event and will happen "rain or shine." The seating area for students and the main stage will be tented; otherwise seats will be exposed to the elements.  As planning continues more information will be posted.

At the event, graduates will have the opportunity to:

  • Have their name announced
  • Receive a CCC diploma cover
  • Walk across the stage
  • Have a professional graduation photo taken
  • Be congratulated by President Cook
  • Be celebrated by CCC board members, faculty and staff


If you have not applied for graduation yet, you need to complete the Application for Graduation form online through Self-Service to have your degree/certificate awarded officially by the college. This is the official process for notifying CCC that you are finishing your program. This is separate from registering to attend the Commencement Ceremony. Review the applying for graduation steps to complete this process. 

The deadlines to apply for graduation for each term are as follows:

  • Winter 2024: Feb. 16, 2024
  • Spring 2024: May 10, 2024

CCC has partnered with Jostens to help with all your graduation announcement and accessory needs.
