Hello 2020 and 2021 Graduates!

Join us this May as we celebrate your many accomplishments. Commencement may look a little different this year, but we are happy to announce our plans for spring graduation ceremonies for all 2020 and 2021 graduates.

To ensure everyone is safe -- and that we are following the latest local public health orders --here's what to expect:

  • Graduation ceremonies will be held outdoors for Boulder County, Larimer County and Westminster/Brighton Center campuses.
  • To accommodate our graduates and guests safely, we will host multiple ceremonies each day. Check your campus details for date/time specifics:
  • To walk at graduation, students must register by April 23, 2021. Space is limited, so registration will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Depending on the campus, each graduate will be limited to three or four guests. Due to local public health orders, guest limits will be strictly enforced. Check your campus for guest limit details.
  • Graduates and their guests will be required to wear a mask and maintain social distance of six feet.
  • Because we will be holding multiple ceremonies, we ask that all students and their guests leave campus within 30 minutes after the end of the event so we can prepare for the next ceremony.
  • Graduates and their guests should not participate in in-person graduation ceremonies if they:
    • Are sick, especially with COVID-19 symptoms.
    • Have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 and are currently in quarantine.
    • Have recently tested positive for COVID-19 and are currently in the isolation period.
    • Those who are at increased risk of severe illness from COID-19 should weigh the risks and benefits of activities they are considering.

Steps to Participate in Graduation

To make sure your application is processed, be sure to submit it by the deadline in the semester you're finishing classes for your degree or certificate. An application submitted after the deadline may need to be processed in the following term.

Application Deadlines:

  • Spring semester: April 1 (or by March 1 to have your name in the Commencement publication)
  • Summer semester: July 1
  • Fall semester: November 1

If you're using Financial Aid, check with a Financial Aid Advisor about finishing your program.

If your legal name has changed, please update your records by filling out a Personal Information Change Request form in eWOLF located under Student Resources > Student Forms.

To avoid surprises, use DegreeCheck (inside eWOLF) every semester to make sure you have all the credits you need. Contact your Pathway Advisor with questions.

To transfer in credits to your FRCC degree or certificate:

  1. Complete the online Transfer Credit Evaluation Request form.
  2. Have the other school mail or email your official transcript directly to FRCC (no hand deliveries). You will need to request an individual transcript from each school.

If you have received credit for prior learning, you also need to turn in the approval forms by the application deadlines above.

To walk at graduation, you must register by April 23, 2021. At this time you can also request tickets for your guests. Please view commencement details for your campus below:
