The annual commencement ceremony is a highlight of our academic year and the beginning of a rewarding career for graduates of Bevill State Community College.
Our current plan is to hold an in-person ceremony for graduates only. This will allow us to recognize your accomplishment, but also maintain social distancing guidelines. Your family and friends will be able to view the ceremony via livestream. A recording of the event will also be posted on our website. Students are eligible to participate in the ceremony if they received a degree or certificate during the Fall 2020 semester or will earn their degree or certificate during the Spring 2021 semester.
You must indicate if you plan to participate in our in-person ceremony by completing the 2021 Graduation Participation Form.
Cap and gowns are ordered directly through Herff Jones. Your graduation regalia will be shipped directly to you. The last date to order is April 13, 2021. Additional items are available for purchase from Herff Jones such as the associate degree hood and honor cords. Students who are completing an Associate in Science, Associate in Arts or Associate in Applied Science may purchase the Associate Degree hood. Also, any graduate with a cumulative 3.5 or higher GPA may purchase the honor cords.
