The 86th Annual Commencement Ceremony will be virtual!

Saturday, May 15, 2021

Delta College has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation. Due to the high number of cases in our region, we have decided that it would be prudent to once again hold a virtual Commencement ceremony for Summer 2020, Fall 2020, and Spring 2021 graduates on Saturday, May 15, 2021 at 10 a.m. PDT

We know this probably isn't what you were hoping to hear. We wish we could gather with you and your family to celebrate your accomplishments in person. But your health and safety come first.

We'll make the best of this! We are excited to plan the ceremony and look forward to your participation.

Graduating students should have received a text and email requesting to sign up and complete the graduation form. If you should have received a text/email and didn't, please contact us at You may also complete the form here. Remember, the deadline for submitting your information and photo for the Virtual Graduation is April 24, 2021.

For this year's ceremony, you'll be able to: 

  • Upload photos and a favorite quote for your personalized student slide.  
  • Use Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat filters to enhance your photos for social media. 
  • Enjoy an interactive Commencement experience with our social media wall. 
  • Watch congratulatory messages from your professors and other Delta College employees.

When will the virtual ceremony happen?

The virtual ceremony for 2021 is scheduled for  Saturday, May 15, 2021.

How will I access the virtual ceremony?

Visit or on the day of Commencement.

What else can I do on the day of the ceremony?

Share photos and videos of your celebration on social media!

What features will the virtual ceremony include?

Just like in-person Commencement, we will have music, distinguished speakers and cherished traditions like the conferring of degrees. You'll also be able to upload photos and a favorite quote for your personalized slide.

Can I access the virtual ceremony later?

Yes. The ceremony will be recorded and made available for future viewing, and we will share that link on this page when it is available.

If we're not having an in-person Commencement, when will I get my diploma?

Delta College does not give out diplomas even at an in-person Commencement event. All diplomas will be mailed after the conclusion of the semester in which the student graduates. This is the same process that has been used in the past. It may take some time for us to process all of your degrees, so we thank you in advance for your patience.
