Spring 2020 SLCC Graduation Candidates,
We know that you weren’t anticipating such a unique final semester, so we hope that you’re taking care of yourselves. While May is approaching quickly, we wholeheartedly believe that you can accomplish your goals in the face of these unprecedented challenges!
Here's a few updates and reminders for you:
At this time, we do not anticipate graduation ceremonies to be impacted by COVID-19 gathering restrictions, but the College will be monitoring the situation weekly and will notify you as soon as a change is necessary. We ask that you monitor your “my.solacc” email, your SLCC Canvas courses, and the SLCC website (www.solacc.edu) for updates.
Graduation regalia, including the SLCC-branded cap and gown, SLCC graduation announcements, and SLCC diploma frames, is still available for order online. The deadline for all online orders is THIS FRIDAY, March 20. The basic cap and gown package is $50 plus tax. Please note that all online regalia orders will be shipped to the SLCC Lafayette Campus in a bulk shipment at the end of April, while online orders for announcements or other graduation paraphernalia will be sent to your personal shipping address specified.
The SLCC Bookstore cannot guarantee the availability of specific cap and gown sizes beyond the March 20 deadline, but the Lafayette Campus Bookstore does currently have a large supply of cap and gown packages available for purchase in every available size. While the Bookstore is closed until further notice due to COVID-19 gathering restrictions, these items will be available for purchase in-person when the restrictions are lifted.
