DACC Graduation News
EXCITING NEWS!!! DACC will be having an in-person Commencement ceremony this year! DACC Commencement will be held Friday, May 21 at 7PM in the now-air conditioned Mary Miller Gymnasium. Anyone who wishes to participate should complete the application to graduate BEFORE APRIL 30.
Each graduate may invite two guests. We will livestream and record the event for any local supporters and out-of-town well-wishers who can’t attend. As an added bonus, the College is paying for the graduates’ caps and gowns.
A letter has gone out to all DACC graduates, so if you have not received a letter detailing the ceremony, please contact the Records Office at (217) 443-8797 or Records@dacc.edu.
A photographer will be at the commencement ceremony to take pictures of all graduates after they cross the stage.
Additionally, our Adult Education department will be hosting an in-person Middle College/GED graduation ceremony at 6PM, Thursday, May 20, in the Mary Miller Gym. This ceremony will include completers from January 2020 to the present. Conditions will be the same as Commencement, with each graduate allowed two guests and live streaming of the ceremony for those who can’t attend.
Successfully completing any stage of your educational journey is a momentous occasion and we are thrilled to be able to offer an appropriate celebration to our graduates this year!
Of course, all of our plans are dependent on current COVID-related conditions remaining the same or improving. Our students, our graduates, our neighbors are depending on everyone in the community who can to do the right thing. We can’t let down our guards – or our community.
