2020 Commencement Important Information for Graduates

Cancellation of 2020 Graduation Ceremonies
Watching you proudly walk across the stage while your family and friends applaud your achievements is one of our favorite times of the year. Thus, it’s with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of Mitchell’s 2020 Commencement Ceremonies. This was not an easy decision to make, but we place your health and safety first and must adhere to state prohibitions on large public gatherings.


Commencement Video
Instead of a traditional ceremony, the 2020 commencement video will feature formal remarks from College leadership and your 2020 Student President’s Award Recipient.  Graduates can take part in the “Move the Tassel” moment with your complimentary 2020 tassel. The tassel will be mailed by July 24 and your commencement video will be by July 30.

Cap & Gowns, Class Rings and Diploma Frames
If you plan to take graduation photos, you may purchase a cap and gown in the College Bookstore.  Click here for the Bookstore hours. If you wish to purchase a Mitchell class ring or diploma frame, please click here.


Class of 2020 Yard Signs
Mitchell Community College Class of 2020 lawn signs are available, at no cost, to help you celebrate your graduation. If you’d like a lawn sign for yourself or a family member, email Stacy Smith at
