CONGRATULATIONS CLASS OF 2017!
Final preparations are under way for an exciting 2017 commencement day. Graduation is always a highlight of the academic year.
Want to walk? Deadline ends soon!
Each graduate who wishes to walk at the ceremony must fill out an Application for Graduation. You must contact your advisor to complete the Application for Graduation.
The deadline is March 8, 2017.
Two Ceremonies This Year
Graduation exercises will be held rain or shine on Thursday, May 11, 2017, at the Love Temple located at 201 North Oak Forest Road in Goldsboro adjacent to Chevrolet Cadillac Dealership of Goldsboro.
Due to our growing number of graduates, and in order to ensure that graduates will be able to invite as many guests as possible, this year there will be two graduation ceremonies held on this day.
- 10 a.m. ceremony, May 11, 2017 – Graduates in Arts & Sciences and Allied Health & Public Services
- 4 p.m. ceremony, May 11, 2017 – Graduates in Applied Technologies, Business & Computer Technologies, and Public Safety
All graduates are requested to attend graduation rehearsal in Moffatt Auditorium in the Wayne Learning Center Building from 10 am – 11:30 am, Tuesday, May 9, 2017, unless you informed us you were not participating in the ceremony. Tickets for graduates’ guests will be distributed at rehearsal. Final numbers will be determined after all graduation applications are processed in March. Our hope is to have at least 6 tickets per graduate. (Previously, graduates were given 4 guest tickets each. Without splitting into two ceremonies, we would have had to go down to 3 guest tickets each).
It Is A Formal Event
Remember, this is a formal graduation. Tennis shoes, flip-flops and/or shorts will not be allowed. All graduates, men and women, should dress business appropriate. This is a church. Absolutely no food, drink or tobacco products are permitted.
Students and/or guests needing special accommodations should contact the Disability Services Counselor prior to graduation to allow ample time for arrangements to be made. Call (919) 739-6729 or TTY (919) 583-8544 for accommodations.
This Graduation section of our website will include updated information about the graduation ceremony. Please have your family and friends refer to the website for specific information about the ceremony.
We look forward to seeing you at rehearsal on Tuesday, May 9, 2017, and also at Graduation on Thursday, May 11, 2017.
