In accordance with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Minnesota State System Office, the in-person graduation ceremony for Fall 2020 will not be held. Instead we will be recognizing graduates and their accomplishments through virtual and socially distant measures including:
Please note: Students eligible for graduation in Fall 2020 should apply for graduation by completing a graduation application and submitting it electronically to the Records Office. Select here for the graduation application. All students who fulfill the program requirements will still earn their diploma, degree, or certificate regardless of an in-person ceremony.
Graduation Regalia Mailing: Graduation regalia (tassels, honors cords, programs, etc.) will be mailed to graduates the week of December 14th. Please make sure your mailing address in eServices is up to date so you don’t miss out.
Graduate Profiles: Reflect on your time at the college with this short survey. We would like to include mini profiles of you and your responses in social media celebrations.
Follow @AnokaTech on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn and continue to check your email for shout outs honoring your accomplishments. Join in celebrating by tagging @AnokaTech and using #ATCGrad20 so we can share your success with others.
