Dear Moorpark College Student,
Congratulations on your completion or upcoming completion of a Moorpark College academic program. You are invited to participate in the annual Moorpark College commencement ceremony. This year’s ceremony will be held on Thursday, May 18th at 6 pm, outdoors in the college Campus Quad.
How Do I Participate in the Moorpark College Graduation Ceremony?
To participate in the graduation ceremony all you need to do is purchase a graduation regalia package from the Moorpark College Bookstore and follow the instructions inside the package. It’s that easy. This package will cost less than $60 and contains a cap, gown (black), a tassel and a diploma cover. The diploma cover will be handed to you on stage during the ceremony. If you are graduating with Honors, (cumulative GPA 3.5 or higher), ask for a “gold” tassel when ordering your cap & gown regalia. Graduation regalia packages will be available beginning Monday, April 10th through graduation day Thursday, May 18th. The college bookstore operating hours are: Monday & Thursday 8am – 6pm, Tuesday & Wednesday 8am – 7pm, Friday 8am – Noon; CLOSED Saturday and Sunday.
Every Moorpark College student who participates in the graduation ceremony must
purchase a graduation regalia package from the Moorpark College Bookstore.
Graduation Rehearsal – Thursday, May 18th @ 10:30am - Campus Quad
Graduation rehearsal will be held the morning of the ceremony on Thursday, May 18th at 10:30am in the outdoor Campus Quad. It is not mandatory for you to attend rehearsal, but highly recommended. I will walk through the ceremony & answer questions. The rehearsal will last approximately one (1) hour.
Guests//Tickets Not Required
