Employees with a Dependent and/or Spouse Graduating

If an employee has a dependent and/or spouse graduating in this year’s Commencement Ceremony on May 20, 2021 and wants to present their diploma on stage, please read below for important information.

In order to present a dependent/spouse with their diploma, the employee will need to participate in a mandatory stage rehearsal the week of the ceremony. Both Pottstown Campus and the Culinary Arts Institute will have a rehearsal via video conference. Employees presenting diplomas to dependents/spouses also participate in the Commencement Ceremony, which includes walking in your academic regalia as a part of the formal procession and sitting in the faculty section of the tent. Employees, who are also receiving their diplomas on May 20, are unable to present diplomas to their dependents/spouses as they are a part of the formal ceremony as a student graduate.

Please contact Commencement@mc3.edu by Thursday, April 22 at 5 p.m. if you would like to present your dependent/spouse with their diploma, or have any additional questions.
