May 6 - Harrisburg, PA
Commencement is a time for our students to celebrate all that they have accomplished during their educational career at Central Penn College. Alumni, students, friends, family members, faculty and staff gather together at The Forum in Harrisburg, Pa. to celebrate accomplishments and look toward the bright future.
Central Penn College utilizes an e-Ticket system to distribute Commencement tickets. Each student participating in Commencement will receive a special link that they can use to download up to six (6) tickets for their guests. Students will be able to instantly download and print tickets for distribution to their invited guests before the Commencement ceremony. Each ticket contains a unique barcode that will allow one guest entry to Commencement. Duplicate tickets will not be accepted, and the guest holding a duplicate ticket will not be admitted.
At the Commencement Fair, students will have the opportunity to pick up their caps and gowns and enjoy some snacks and refreshments. Additional information about the Commencement Fair will be shared as the date draws closer.
The commencement ceremony is symbolic and ceremonial – your participation should not be confused with your actual graduation from Central Penn College. Students do not officially graduate until all degree requirements have been met as defined in the catalog.
