CACC announces in-person graduations this May

Coastal Alabama Community College announced Tuesday it will host in-person graduation ceremonies on the Bay Minette, Brewton and Monroeville campuses in May 2021.

Graduation ceremonies are scheduled for the following dates and times:

• Monroeville – Thursday, May 13, at 11 a.m.

· Brewton – Thursday, May 13, at 4 p.m.

· Bay Minette – Friday, May 14, at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. Students will sign up for a particular time, according to a release.

Qualified students who wish to walk in May 2021 should complete the graduation application on Coastal Alabama’s website by April 8 to ensure participation. The college’s Barnes & Noble bookstore has a $43.98 graduation package, which includes gown, tassel and cap that students can keep. Caps and gowns must be ordered by May 7 to participate in the May 2021 graduation ceremony. Orders may be placed online or in the Bay Minette Campus Barnes & Noble Bookstore.

Adult education graduates should contact the Adult Education Office at 251-580-2105 for more information regarding graduation.

CACC will continue to heed CDC and Alabama Department of Public Health guidelines for public, indoor events for these graduation ceremonies. College officials will also continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic as plans move forward for the events.

At this time, CACC has not set if tickets will be provided for guests or how many tickets each graduate will receive. Those details will be discussed after the graduation application closes on April 8. More information will be posted at that time.

For graduates or families who prefer not to participate in a seated ceremony, the College will again offer the virtual graduation ceremony acknowledging all of the 2021 graduates.
