Graduation/Commencement Ceremony

Graduation/Commencement Ceremony

Anoka-Ramsey Community College will hold one Commencement Ceremony at the end of Spring Semester. Coon Rapids and Cambridge will each have their own Ceremony.

If you submitted a degree application for Fall 2023, Spring 2024 or Summer 2024 you will be invited to participate in the Commencement Ceremony. If you have not submitted a degree application, please click on Program Completion Applications under the Forms & Resource box. Due to space constraints, we are unable to include certificate and diploma students to the Commencement Ceremony at this time.

If you wish to attend the Commencement Ceremony to celebrate your accomplishments, you will need to RSVP to guarantee a seat. Early March you will receive an email to your ARCC and personal email with the RSVP link.

Please continue to check back here as more commencement information becomes available.
