Graduation 2018 is Moving to a Monday  

The move to a later spring semester start date for the College means that TCC’s 48th commencement ceremony is also being moved back a week and will now take place on Monday evening, May 14th.
 
“Moving the start of school back a week caused our graduation date to move, and with ORU being “graduation central” in the month of May, this was the first available date at the Mabee Center after finals,” said Dr. Bill Ivy, senior adviser to the president and board liaison. “The Mabee Center is a convenient location for TCC students, employees and their families, and Dr. Jan Clayton and her team have a great working relationship with the ORU events staff, so we were fortunate to find a date that worked for both of us.”
