Class of 2021 Graduation
Graduation 2021 - Monday, June 21st - Preliminary Information
Graduation Ceremony by Career Major:
Date: June 21 (Rain Date June 22)
When: Program to begin at 10:00 am
Where: BCIT Medford Campus (Outdoors: Staff Parking Lot)
The Graduation Ceremony will be a series of mini-ceremonies organized by the students’ CTE area (Career Major). A schedule will be provided to the students and families with the assigned times for their ceremony in the coming weeks. Each ceremony will be approximately 35-40 minutes, students will be safely seated on stage with their classmates wearing caps and gowns, walk across the stage to receive their diploma, and have a professional photograph taken.
Due to the current guidelines, students will receive four tickets for the ceremony and only one vehicle will be permitted on campus. A specific parking plan will be shared as the event approaches. Ticket recipients will be safely seated in front of the stage as they view the ceremony.
All students and ticket recipients must follow social distancing protocols and will be required to wear masks at all times. Student seats will be arranged according to the current social distancing guidelines set forth by the CDC and the state.
At the conclusion of the ceremony, students will be directed to a designated area to obtain all their final documentation and directed to leave campus. Once again, all social distancing guidelines must be followed and we are requesting that students and families leave the campus once the ceremony has concluded. We will have approximately 6 ceremonies throughout the day and we must limit the number of people on campus at one time.
We all know that nothing could replace the memories of traditional graduation, but we are hopeful that we are providing the best opportunity under the current conditions to celebrate the graduates.
