Spring 2019 Ceremony

Graduation exercises will be held rain or shine on Friday, May 10, 2019 at the Maxwell Center located at 3114 Wayne Memorial Drive in Goldsboro adjacent to the college.

Due to our large number of graduates, and in order to ensure that graduates will be able to invite as many guests as possible, there will be two graduation ceremonies.

Our curriculum graduation will be Friday, May 10, 2019, with two ceremonies again this year:

10 am ceremony for graduates from Arts & Sciences and Allied Health


4 pm ceremony for graduates from Applied Technologies, Business & Computer Technologies, Public Services, and Public Safety

Both ceremonies will be live streamed via Facebook Live. The streams will be located on our main Facebook page.

Graduation Rehearsal

All graduates are requested to attend Graduation Rehearsal in the Wayne Learning Center Building on Thursday, May 9, 2019 unless you informed us you were not walking in the ceremony.  Tickets for graduates’ guests will be distributed at rehearsal.  Final numbers will be determined after all graduation applications have been processed.  Our hope is to have 6 tickets per graduate.  (In previous ceremonies, graduates received 4 guest tickets each.  Without splitting into 2 ceremonies, we would have had to go down to 3 guest tickets each.)

11 am – 2:30 pm lunch will be provided to graduates in the Student Lounge

12:30 pm – 2 pm Graduation Rehearsal in the Moffatt Auditorium

12:30 pm – 4 pm cap and gown portraits in the College Transfer Advising Center

It Is A Formal Event

Remember, this is a formal graduation ceremony.  Tennis shoes, flip-flops, and/or shorts will not be allowed.  All graduates should dress business appropriate.  Absolutely no food, drink, or tobacco products are permitted.
